Feb. 2, 2009, Orleans, MA – Conklin & de Decker will be presenting
two informative sessions at the PAMA 2009 Aviation Maintenance
Management Symposium in Dallas, Texas on Fri., March 6, 2009.

Brandon Battles will be presenting a session on “Moving into Management
– The Often Overlooked Responsibility” on Friday, March 6, 2009 from 8
am – 9 am. One new responsibility frequently overlooked in a transition
deals with the maintenance manager’s new role in the analysis and
control of the organization’s financial resources.  When a technician
moves into a maintenance management position, the individual will
inherit new responsibilities and, unfortunately, will do without much
preparation or training.  More times than not, this combination creates
an unfortunate and eventual frustrating situation. This session will
explain and offer suggestions for dealing with common maintenance
responsibilities that affect an organization’s financial resources such
as budgeting, inventory, and maintenance costs. 

Nel Stubbs will be presenting a session on “Taxation Considerations of
Aircraft Maintenance” on Friday, March 6, 2009 from 9 am – 10 am. An
area of responsibility that is frequently overlooked when a technician
moves into a maintenance management position is the application of
taxes to not only parts and labor, but also depreciation of the engines
and airframe. This session will explain and offer suggestions for
dealing with Federal and State taxes on aircraft maintenance.

Both of these courses qualify for one (1) hour IA renewal credit.
