AIAA Governance Project
Welcome to the Governance Project Webpage. It was created at the direction of the
Governance Working Group (GWG) as a comprehensive resource for the AIAA community on the governance project and Constitution change. These changes are necessary for the Institute to evolve into an adaptable, responsive, and strategic organization to better serve you and our changing industry.
AIAA Election 2017
As a voting AIAA Member, be a vital part of shaping your Institute’s future. For 2017, an outstanding slate of Board of Trustees and Council of Directors candidates are included on the ballot. Cast your vote starting 6 February.
In spring 2016 members were asked to make their voices heard regarding changes to the AIAA Constitution and Bylaws. An overwhelming majority of members who voted (91.8%) supported the proposed changes put forth by the Governance Working Group (GWG) and other AIAA leadership, including the Board of Directors (BOD) and Blue Ribbon Panel.
As then-President Jim Albaugh noted in the letter announcing the results of the vote, “this marks a new beginning for AIAA,” and transition planning began immediately. What has happened since? The BOD and GWG have met twice since then to discuss the transition timeline and a Governance Transition Group (GTG) was established by the Board.
Transition to the AIAA new governance model will take place starting in May 2017. Details of the Governance Transition Plan from the existing Board of Directors to the new Council of Directors and Board of Trustees are available here. Please visit this page often for updates. Thank you for your ongoing support and involvement!
