NEC/AAAE Selects CHMS for Association Management

The Board of Directors is pleased to announce that the Northeast Chapter of the American Association of Airport Executives (NEC) has selected Capitol Hill Management Services (CHMS) as the new firm for managing the association.  

2018 has been an excellent year for the Northeast Chapter. We have had many successful snow academies and conferences, including our 60th Anniversary Annual Conference, giving us several opportunities to network and share knowledge with our ever increasing membership. 

Our association management contract was nearing completion and the Board of Directors solicited for association management services through a request for qualifications (RFQ). The process resulted in our decision to work with Capitol Hill Management Services (CHMS).  We thank the Association Development Group (ADG) for their years of support and are excited to have CHMS onboard as our new firm.  The new staff and website will take the NEC to an even higher level of service to our members, thus forging the way for another successful 60 years and beyond. 

“NEC/AAAE serves to develop leaders in the aviation industry through the creation of networking and professional development opportunities,” said John A. Graziano, Jr., President of Capitol Hill Management Services. “We are pleased to work with the association’s dedicated Board of Directors and volunteers in ensuring a successful future.” 

The new office operation begins on Friday, November 16, 2018.
