    In The Beginning…

    The Craftsmen’s Classic organization was founded 35 years ago by the Gilmore family of Greensboro, NC. Clyde Gilmore, a jewelry maker, wanted to create a “family” of artists and craftsmen, nationwide, that could stage indoor festivals showcasing their totally original works and interact one-on-one with the public. The first such event, the “granddaddy” and prototype of all the others on today’s schedule, was the Christmas Classic, Thanksgiving Weekend, at the Greensboro Coliseum.


    There are now 10 Craftsmen’s Classics held annually and throughout the year in Columbia and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Richmond, Roanoke and Chantilly, Virginia and Greensboro, North Carolina. Produced by Gilmore Enterprises, Inc., headquartered in the city of Greensboro, the organization is managed by the late founder’s son, Executive Director Clyde Gilmore III, one of the crafts and fine arts industry’s most acclaimed and award-winning promoters. The Classic events have been named more often than those of any other promoter to the “200 Best” list by the prestigious Sunshine Artist Magazine and have been named often as “Top 20 Events” by the Southeast Tourism Society. Gilmore can also calculate success by the longevity of the Classics — most of which are in their 15th to 25th year or more — and by the tens of thousands of visitors that eagerly anticipate them and attend, year after year.

    The hallmark of the shows, from the beginning, is creative excellence and absolute originality in every specialty. Clyde and his wife, Tami, design each Classic with a fine balance of crafts and fine art and the specialties within those areas. There is careful thought given to a balance of traditional and contemporary works as well. More than 6,000 of the country’s finest artisans are members; depending on the size of the facility, there are between 300 and 550 participants in a Craftsmen’s Classic show.

    Established in Washington, D.C., in 1956 by a group of air traffic controllers, the Air Traffic Control Association has been from the outset dedicated to progress in the science of air traffic control and the preservation of a safe flight environment. It provides a forum in which those concerned can address the myriad issues inherent to the development of viable air traffic control systems and aviation infrastructures, and the ever increasing demands on the global navigable airspace environment. Those in the aviation community — the providers of air traffic control, system architects, manufacturers, suppliers, system operators and users — join together in ATCA to share their collective experience, knowledge, and efforts in pursuit of common goals.

    ATCA is unique in representing a broad spectrum of civil-military cooperation typical of global flying activities. ATCA’s Annual Conference and Exhibition provides North America’s largest and most diverse venue for aviation-related technology, attracting thousands of civilian and military members and representatives from around the world. ATCA also holds technical symposia, cyber security summits, and various high-level collaborative meetings and briefings domestically and throughout Europe, the Pacific Rim and Latin America. ATCA’s Civil Military Air Traffic Management Summit, known as CMAC™, attracts civil and military aviation leaders from around the world.

    The ATCA publications, The Journal of Air Traffic Control, Conference Technical “Proceedings,” and the ATCA Bulletin, are prominent sources for the latest news and achievements in the field.

    ATCA is a non-profit, non-government, professional organization. Membership is open to all who share a common interest in promoting and encouraging the advancement of aviation and air traffic control. The governing body is composed of representatives from all segments of the aviation community.
    The Symposium is an ideal forum to showcase air traffic control to the US Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Army. The Symposium helps reinforce the Joints Service professional excellence in the ATC community. It allows senior military and civilian professionals to enlighten, inspire, and educate junior and senior military air traffic controllers on ATC’s latest technological advances, operational enhancements, and policy changes. The Symposium provides the perfect opportunity to get beyond the classroom and traditional training methods.
