Heidi Hamm Heidi Hamm, Program Fulfillment Manger, began her employment with EAA in March of 2005. She moved to the Oshkosh area from Central Wisconsin shortly before she started working at EAA and did not realize how large EAA and AirVenture was until that first summer when SpaceShipOne arrived. After that she was hooked!

In her current role, Heidi assists all of our business partners and donors in planning and executing their participation at AirVenture. Wristbands, signage and hospitality are just a few of the many responsibilities she has during AirVenture. "I love working with all our business partners and donors. It's so exciting to hear about their successes at AirVenture!"

Heidi has been married to her husband Keith for four years and they enjoy heading to the family cabin in Northern Wisconsin anytime they can in the summer and fall.

Heidi can be reached via phone at 920.426.6565 or hhamm@eaa.org.
