Committee Chairs

Committee Chairs are generally elected by their peers for a one or two-year term, at the discretion of the committee.

ACI-NA’s 17 committees ensure that airport officials have the latest information on regulatory and industry issues.  From Air Cargo to Business Diversity to Environmental and Operations and Technical Affairs, these groups develop policy, legislative and regulatory comments for the benefit of the airport industry.

Committee members also discuss issues of common interest and plan conference programs so the content is relevant to what’s happening at North American airports.  Each committee gets individual staff attention as its members help to facilitate meetings, industry projects and conference planning.
