MEMBERSHIP

Overview

AIA represents more than 300 aerospace and defense manufacturers and suppliers. Membership is responsible for recruitment and retention efforts of Full and Associate Members.  In addition, the membership division manages the Supplier Management Council (SMC) which is a non-attributional forum open to Full and Associate Members where senior supply chain representatives from system integrators and manufacturers address issues impacting the aerospace and defense supply chain.

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.
