Membership is responsible for recruitment and retention efforts for Full and Associate Members. The Supplier Management Council (SMC) is a unique, non-attributional forum open to Full and Associate Members where senior supply chain representatives from system integrators and manufacturers tackle issues that impact the aerospace and defense supply chain.
Together, we are working hard on the most pressing issues facing the aerospace & defense industry. Unlike many other associations, CEOs of our member companies and their senior managers define and drive our agenda. We work together to shape regulatory and legislative policies. We help you – and all levels of your organization – get closer to your customers and competitors by providing numerous networking opportunities through meetings, international air shows, and an extensive network of councils, committees, and working groups.
Full Membership provides access to all of the Association’s meetings, events, and services.
Member dues are determined by the Board of Governors and are based on the average of the member’s U.S. aerospace sales for the previous two years. Maximum dues are $406,821 and minimum dues are $6,916. To learn how AIA defines aerospace sales, please click here.

AIA’s Supplier Management Council (SMC) is a unique, non-attributional forum where senior supply chain representatives from system integrators and manufacturers tackle issues that impact the aerospace and defense supply chain. Open to both Full Members and Associate Members, the Council’s mission is to: integrate and focus the collective capabilities of the supply chain, at every level, to exert unique influence in the formation of strategy, policy, and regulations that enable the U.S. aerospace and defense industry to successfully compete in the global market, be profitable, and strengthen the U.S. position as the world leader.
The SMC hosts three meetings a year that bring together more than 250 of the industry’s supply chain leaders from system integrators and manufacturers. Dan Olmes, Assistant Vice President, Membership
