Nominations Open for Five Seats on Steering Group

Reminder: Deadline for Nominations is Sept. 22

For more than 40 years, ACI-NA’s Marketing and Communications Committee has provided professional support and educational opportunities for ACI-NA members in air service and business development, marketing, public affairs, customer service and community relations.  The Committee develops aviation-related educational and policy programs for ACI-NA members, identifies issues and promotes public awareness of airports as economic generators for their communities and develops strategies for delivering strong customer service and attracting new air service.

The Committee includes three active Working Groups, including Customer Service and Aviation Education, Media Relations, and Marketing and Air Service Development.

A new Participation Plan was adopted last month that expands the Steering Group to 20 airport representatives and formally increases the Canadian representation to 5 airport members. The new plan also institutes term limits and other structural changes.

Thus, the Nominations Committee is currently seeking candidates to fill 5 positions.

Each new Steering Group members will serve a one-year term with the option of serving four consecutive years as spelled out in the Participation Plan.

Positions to be filled:

·         4 U.S. airport representatives

·         1 Canadian airport representative

Any member may nominate themselves or another person for these positions.  If you or someone you know would be an ideal candidate, please follow the link to submit your information. The form allows you to nominate one person at a time. If you would like to nominate more than one person, please click on the link again.

The Nominations Committee will submit a slate to the entire Marketing and Communications Committee in late October via an electronic ballot. In assembling the slate, the Nominations Committee will select candidates based on experience and participation in Committee events as well as striving for geographic, industry-sector and airport-size diversity on the Steering Group.

The Steering Group will review the Nominations Committee’s proposed slate at its Oct. 16 meeting in San Diego. The meeting is open to all Committee members.

Please submit the nominating information by Thursday, Sept. 22, 2011.


Thank you!
