Antonio Junior of Miami Springs, Florida, guides the financial direction of Florida Conservation, Inc., the company he founded in 2003. Earlier in his career, Antonio Junior served as the southeast regional director and national treasurer of the Airport Minority Advisory Council (AMAC) in Miami.
AMAC was established to provide additional opportunities for minorities in the field of aviation. AMAC recognizes that some groups are underrepresented in the aviation industry, and the council would like to correct this by tearing down barriers that hold back women, people of color, and other minorities.
To aid aviation students and other young professionals, AMAC’s charitable foundation offers three scholarships each year. To qualify, students must express a desire to work in the field of aviation and a commitment to diversity in the industry. Students must also pursue a BA or BS in a field related to aviation, though this can include business management, architecture, and other tangentially related disciplines.
