Airport Deputy Director Chosen for

National Security Forum

February 25, 2018

Matt Dowell, Deputy Director at the Golden Triangle Regional (GTR) Airport, was recently selected by the Air Force to attend the 65th Annual National Security Forum (NSF) at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama. The Air Force’s Air War College annually hosts approximately 150 civilian distinguished visitors for the NSF. The purpose of the forum is to share perspectives between key civic leaders, senior military officers, and highly experienced government civilians on current and future topics pertaining to strategic leadership, strategy, national security, and other key areas.

Dowell was nominated by the leadership at the Columbus Air Force Base and selected based on his background and the key role he plays in the local community. “Matt is an outstanding professional,” said Mike Hainsey, Executive Director at GTR. “He’s exactly the type of person this program is designed for.”

“I’m honored and looking forward to this opportunity to interact with other professionals on these key issues,” said Dowell.
