Our Vision: To be the nationally recognized voice for the public interest, states and territories on aviation and the national aviation system.

NextGen Institute Management Council

Established in March of 2005, the NextGen Institute, a part of the Joint Program and Development Office, is managed by the Institute Management Council (IMC), which oversees the policy, recommendations, and products of the NextGen Institute. NASAO President and CEO Kim Stevens (Interim) is a member-at-large of the IMC. NASAO entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the FAA in 2007 to satisfy the RTCA NextGen Mid-Term Implementation Task Force call for government and industry to work collaboratively on NextGen. In this role, NASAO helps define how government organizations at the state level might more actively help encourage and advance NextGen implementation.

NASAO is one of the most senior aviation organizations in the United States, predating even the Federal Aviation Administration’s predecessor, the Civil Aeronautics Authority. The states first established NASAO to ensure uniformity of safety measures, to standardize airport regulations and develop a truly national air transportation system responsive to local, state, and regional needs.

NASAO holds two formal conferences each year – our Annual Convention and Trade Show, typically held in September and a Washington Legislative Conference held in the nation’s Capital during the February/March timeframe. NASAO also has a presence at EAA’s AirVenture, held each year in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in late July. Whether you are looking to attend an interesting, informative and relevant conference or would like to exhibit or sponsor an event, let us know. More
