The MARPA 2016 Conference will be held October 26-27, 2016 at the B Resort & Spa. We are very excited about the 2016 Conference. There is a great deal of change happening in the industry and our program and agenda will reflect this. You can also look forward to an expanded workshop program on the first day and an expanded exhibit floor during the conference. We also look forward to announcing some of the work that we've been accomplishing over the past year on behalf of the members, including some programs that should provide some new direct benefits to MARPA members.
The 2016 MARPA Winter Meeting is tentatively scheduled in Washington, DC on February 9, 2016.
The Winter Meeting is an intimate opportunity to work closely with the Association and the Board on a topics of special interest to MARPA members.

This meeting typically includes presentations by government and trade association representatives. The meeting also includes a discussion of MARPA strategic objectives, initiatives, and plans.
Past topics have included items like Continued Operational Safety (COS), Safety Management Systems (SMS), Sequencing, ICA, and Research Tax Credits.
The 2016 MARPA EMEA Conference will be held in Madrid, Spain on May 23-24, 2016. MARPA is pleased to be co-hosting this Conference with the cooperation of the European, Middle Eastern, and Asian communities.
This Conference brings together parts users (like airlines and MROs) and parts producers (like PMA holders) to learn more about how to integrate PMA parts into their systems to improve safety and reliability, as well as to save money. This is also a great networking opportunity. And operators and MROs will find that the reliability improvements, safety improvements and cost savings that can be discovered at this conference should provide tremendous ROI for the time invested.
This meeting includes presentations by government and industry representatives on topics of interest to the community of aircraft parts users, as well as to manufacturers.
