The Business Diversity Committee (BDC) is committed to developing proactive outreach and educational programs that provide a forum to discuss diversity issues and promoting best practices.  The Committee monitors changes in legislation, regulatory requirements, and business practices affecting disadvantaged business enterprises (“DBE”), airport concessions disadvantaged business enterprises (“ACDBE”) and female, minority and small (F/M/S) businesses at airports.  It contributes to ACI-NA policy recommendations on DBE/ACDBE/F/M/S business issues, as well as, promotes successful airport DBE/ACDBE/F/M/S/ business programs. The BDC is further committed to demonstrating that diversity is a good business practice in that it promotes supplier competition and helps develop an airport business environment and workforce that is reflective of the community in which it operates.
