Andrew Bourne, Chair – The September 21 committee meeting was held at the Scottsdale Republic offices. Updates were provided by Scottsdale City representatives from the Airport and economic development on the Air Fair and the various projects underway for business expansion and community events. The Airpark Volunteer Committee will need at least 175 volunteers to assist at the Air Fair scheduled for November 5 - 6. All members are encouraged to participate by signing up at the Air Fair website at www.scottsdaleairfair.com.
The September Meet-Your-Neighbors event was a success with more than 85 people attending. The next event will be held later this year promoting the connecting of businesses in the Airpark.
The new Airpark Forum event, which replaces the First Friday Airpark Breakfast, is scheduled for its inaugural event on November 9 at the Xona Resort.
A steering committee has been formed for the Airpark to participate in the first annual SciTech Festival in Arizona. The Festival will showcase Arizona and the Airpark as national leaders in science, technology and innovation through a series of events taking place during the month of March 2012. More details will be provided in the coming months on how individuals and businesses can assist the Airpark Committee and participate in the event.
