Welcome to the COPPERSTATE Forums page!

 

If you have an area of aviation expertise you’d like to share with the community of aviation enthusiasts, please e-mail us at the addresses shown below (please send your message to both of us so we’ll be less likely to miss it). In your message, please list the title of your presentation, the name of the speaker, company affiliation (if any), and your preference for day and time. Please see the forums schedule on this site for the available time slots. We’ll try to accommodate your preference on a first come, first served basis. As you see on the forums schedule, time slots are 55 minutes maximum, to allow audiences time to exit before the next audience enters.

We provide 20×30 foot tents in the Forums Plaza, each seating approximately 60 people. Each tent is equipped with a white board and markers, 120 VAC power, and a public address system. Overhead projectors are available for transparencies, projected on the whiteboard. We can provide a video projector for your presentation.

To get your forum in the COPPERSTATE program, you must sign up by October 18th.

See you at COPPERSTATE!
