RMKS/1. The Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) will hold the Navy and 
Marine Corps Air Traffic Control (ATC) Symposium in San Diego, CA at the 
Wyndham Bayside from 1-3 May 2018.  The symposium is designed to educate, 
retain, enlighten and inspire the top E-4 through E-6 fleet air traffic 
controllers.  The event is a combination of briefs, panels, working groups 
and industry interaction.  Industry representatives for air traffic 
management equipment, simulators, and software provide displays that serve to 
educate and prepare controllers for future opportunities and challenges to 
DON air traffic control.

2. This forum provides a vehicle for senior Military and civilian 
professionals to enlighten, inspire, and educate junior Navy and Marine Corps 
air traffic controllers on the technological advances, operational 
enhancements and policy changes that have taken place within the air traffic 
control profession. Topics include:

- US Navy and USMC Air Traffic Control Strategic Plan and Evolution Roadmap

traffic control community and enhance retention within the critical E-4 
through E-6 paygrades.  While the focus is on our active duty members, all 
Navy and Marine Corps, civil service, retired, Enlisted and Officer ATC 
professionals are cordially invited to attend.
