On Wednesday, January 28, 180 Skills team members and team members from Ivy Tech Community College traveled to the statehouse for the Aviation Association of Indiana (AAI) Legislative Day. Booths were set up for display in the spacious Rotunda. As legislators entered the State House, they had to pass by the exhibits. Many lawmakers stopped to visit with team members and pick up brochures about aviation businesses and university programs.
After the statehouse portion of the event, exhibitors were invited to eat lunch with General Assembly members at the downtown Marriott. Ivy Tech President, Tom Snyder, participated in the luncheon. This was a great opportunity to highlight aviation to our state leaders.
