Supplier Management Council

AIA’s 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 two in-person meetings a year that bring together more than 250 of the industry’s supply chain leaders from system integrators and manufacturers. In addition to standing committees, other ad hoc committees are stood up on a limited basis to address key supply chain concerns. The SMC is led by the Supplier Management Council Leadership Committee (SLC). Members of the SLC are determined by election only.
