Fighting for the Future: Our Talk with Tom McMahon of AUVSI

Logo 600 x 600Tom McMahon is at the cutting edge of drone law in the U.S. As Vice President of Advocacy and Public Relations with AUVSI, Tom is working every day to advance common-sense drone policy in Washington, D.C.

AUVSI is the nation’s oldest and largest trade association for the unmanned vehicle industry. AUVSI’s local chapters are located all around the country, as the organization brings together dedicated industry professionals to work for the common good.

I joined AUVSI in 2013 when I went to its trade show, which was then hosted in Washington, D.C. I still count the connections I made there as some of the most important in my career. The annual show, now branded as XPonential, is the only event that I’m sure to go to each year.

The mix of people that AUVSI brings together is unmatched in variety, quality, and overall passion for the future of the industry.

It’s at AUVSI that I met the people who are fighting for the future of the drone industry.

Tom joined the show to discuss what AUVSI is doing at the national and state level, the importance of state and federal policy for the drone industry, and upcoming issues that we should all be aware of.

Listen in for the latest, and for more on what tomorrow might bring.
