RAA Summer Seminars

Thank you to all of our attendees, speakers and sponsors for another successful Summer Seminars!

More than 100 attendees joined RAA in New Orleans  for the annual seminar series featuring educational sessions designed to meet the needs of today's regional airline industry managers.  With the assistance of key stakeholders from ATA, ASA, FAA, Ford & Harrison, MedAire, University of North Dakota, member airlines and our valued sponsors and exhibitors, RAA was proud to host these tracks once again.

Human Resources Seminar highlights included Employment Law Jeopardy (presented by Piedmont Airlines HR department), PRIA Compliance and case studies, pilot labor supply trends, discussions on effectively managing aggressive behavior in the workplace, labor law updates, and a joint session with the Inflight attendees on labor relations management.

Inflight Seminar highlights included updates on collective bargaining agreements, break-out sessions on recruiting, best safety practices, and an in-depth review of airline inflight medical events.

Anti-Drug & Alcohol Misuse Seminar highlights included a first ever trip to a DOT drug testing facility in New Orleans, a DOT regulatory and drug testing update, sharing of best practices regarding OTC and Rx drugs as well as an update on the latest "Craze drugs".  Special thanks to Dr. Donna Smith and FirstLab for making this seminar possible.

Make plans to join us next year on August 6-8, 2012 at the Don Cesar Hotel  in St. Pete Beach, FL.
