U.S. Government Affairs Committee

The U.S. Government Affairs Committee is the policy making body for federal government programs, legislation and regulations affecting airport operators. Through the Committee, airport directors and government relations staff from small, medium and large airports meet and discuss a wide array of issues and concerns. The Members develop consensus policy positions on federal legislative and regulatory matters for the ACI-NA's Board of Directors. The Committee guides ACI-NA's government relations activities to represent and advocate the interests of U.S. airports before Congress and the Administration, particularly the Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration.
