Supplier Management Council

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 influence the strategies, policies, 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.
