Why book at headquarters hotel?

It is critical that all our attendees support ATCA by reserving their rooms only in our headquarters hotel, GAYLORD RESORTS NATIONAL HARBOR, for our event.  ATCA receives a much needed incentive toward convention expenses based upon the number of attendees staying overnight at the headquarters hotel for our event. If you stay in hotels other than the headquarters your attendance does not count toward our incentive. By booking you room in the headquarters hotel, not only are you saving your time and convenience being onsite, but you help keep registration fees as low as possible by helping ATCA keep costs down for the event.  
 
 
***  Reservations for the ATCA Annual Conference should be made through this website only.  If you receive a call from any individual(s) stating they represent or they are partnered with ATCA Housing/Annual Conference DO NOT make any bookings with them.  They ARE NOT affiliated with ATCA and do not represent nor are they connected with the Gaylord National Harbor.    Reservations for the ATCA Annual Conference can only be made through this site or by calling Gaylord National reservations at 1-877-382-7299. ***

 

TRAVELING FROM THE FAA?

If you plan to travel from a building located inside or near the FAA, or via the L’Enfant Plaza Metro, use ATCA's free shuttle! The shuttle travels between FAA HQ and the ATCA Annual at the Gaylord all three days of the event.

    Hon. Linda Hall Daschle Named 2018 Glen A. Gilbert Memorial Award Winner


    The Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) is pleased to announce that former FAA Acting Administrator Linda Hall Daschle has been selected as the 2018 recipient of the prestigious Glen A. Gilbert Memorial Award, one of the most prominent awards in aviation and ATCA’s highest honor.

    A pioneer for women in air traffic management, Daschle was the first female to hold the post of Acting Administrator for the FAA. She began her aviation career in Kansas nearly 45 years ago as a licensed weather observer for the agency. In 1993, she was nominated by President Clinton and confirmed by the US Senate for the position of FAA Deputy Administrator. One of her first tasks involved an assessment of the agency’s key air traffic modernization program called the Advanced Automation System which was eventually overhauled, saving the agency an estimated $1.6 billion. She also oversaw the advancement of new regional airline safety regulations and conducted a review of the agency’s safety and surveillance program, which resulted in one of the single largest hires of new safety inspectors in FAA history. 

    Ms. Daschle has held numerous government and private-sector leadership positions, including with the American Association of Airport Executives, the Air Transport Association, the former Civil Aeronautics Board, and with the law firm of Baker Donelson. She is currently President of LHD & Associates, Inc, and serves on the board of Aireon, LLC.

    In accepting the Glen A. Gilbert Memorial Award, Ms. Daschle joins aviation greats, including Delta’s Richard Anderson, NATCA President Paul Rinaldi, the Hon. Jane Garvey, Boeing’s Neil Planzer, former Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, and pilot A. Scott Crossfield. (View press release HERE.)
