Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport
Conference Room A in the Historic Terminal A
Arlington, VA 22202

Look at your drivers license.  Is there a black or gold star at the top?  If not, you're likely not compliant with Real ID / Homeland Security. 

Yikes! What's going on, and how can you help your travelers and clients understand the new regulatory landscape?

Join your Baltimore Washington Business Travel Association friends and colleagues to learn not only about Real ID, but also hear from American Airlines' Tracy Montross about FAA Reauthorization (the US Government's authorization to keep the FAA going!) and all about construction at DCA's Terminal A and the new National Hall.

Information on Parking for Terminal A can be found here.

A map of Terminal A with a red arrow pointing to the Conference area can be viewed below.

This session is approved for 1 GTP® Recertification Credit.
