    AIAA Committees and Working Groups

    AIAA committees are part of the volunteer leadership of the Institute, comprising of some of our most dedicated members.

     

    AIAA Technical Committees

    AIAA Technical Committees (TCs) bring together experts in their fields from around the globe to help develop and administer over 20 technical conferences each year; to conduct professional development courses, produce books, and serve as journal and book reviewers; to formulate technology assessment packages for the non-technical public; and even to develop and judge college student design competitions. Find a committee that matches your technical interests and expertise, and it can help your career in many ways.


    AIAA Integration and Outreach Committees

    AIAA Integration and Outreach Committees (IOCs) are the heart and muscle of AIAA’s programmatic and societal activities.  These Committees cover all programmatic and societal interests of the Institute. Work across technical disciplines to forward innovation in our industry by joining an Integration and Outreach Committee.

    AIAA Standing Committees

    AIAA Standing Committees draw on the vast expertise of our membership to help the Institute achieve its multi-faceted mission, and guide its course into the future. Serving a variety of objectives, the Standing Committees support our members' needs, recognize their achievements, organize career-enhancing activities, give them a voice in public policy, foster productive interactions with their peers, and help them advance technically and professionally. Help the Institute thrive and grow by joining a Standing Committee.


    AIAA Committees on Standards

    AIAA Committees on Standards are overseen by the Standards Executive Council. These committees provide an invaluable service by fostering the development of new aerospace standards as well as updating current standards and setting the overall direction for the standardization work of the Institute. If you are interested in lending your expertise to this fundamental work, which benefits the entire aerospace profession, please contact the AIAA Director of Standards.


    Diversity Working Group (DWG)

    In order for AIAA to be the voice of the aerospace profession, and shape the future of aerospace, our leaders understand that our membership needs to be diverse in race, ethnicity, and gender. The AIAA DWG was formed to encourage participation and collaboration across all genders, ethnicities and races, and to enhance AIAA’s representation of the entire industry.

    This working group consists of four subgroups:

    • Outreach Subgroup
    • Diversity Programming Subgroup
    • Leadership, Growth, and Retention Subgroup
    • Communications Subgroup

    It is the working group's goal to improve on the following statistics, and grow the number of women and people from different races and ethnicities, to make our membership more in-line with current industry demographics. Learn more.
