Supplier Management Council

AIA’s Supplier Management  Council (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 three meetings a year that bring together more than 250 of the indus- try’s  supply chain leaders from system integrators  and manufacturers.  AIA contact: Betsy Schmid, Vice President, National Security and Acquisition Policy.
