4 What is the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)?
5 Aeronautical Sciences OriginsInstitute of Aeronautical SciencesAmerican Interplanetary SocietyAmerican RocketSociety – Founded 1930Institute of theAeronautical SciencesFounded 1932FormedAIAA in 1963
6 AIAA Tagline, Mission, Vision and Core Values AIAA Tagline The World’s Forum for Aerospace Leadership AIAA Mission To address the professional needs and interests of the past, current, and future aerospace workforce, and To advance the state of aerospace science, engineering, technology, operations, and policy to benefit our global society. AIAA Vision To be the shaping, dynamic force in the aerospace profession - the forum for innovation, technical excellence, and global leadership. Our Core Values Excellence Community Leadership Knowledge IntegrityOur Core ValuesExcellence We expect nothing less than perfection in all we do. The critical consequences of our work and the impact to society at large drive our passion for overcoming risk. Community We bring together a diverse community to collaborate and share information and insights among pioneers, practitioners, future generations, staff and partners to enable personal, professional, and business growth. Leadership We lead the global aerospace community into the future with visionary inspiration and the talent of our membership. Knowledge Our profession requires lifelong learning, and knowledge that is wide and deep. We must inspire future generations to continue the quest for broad and profound understanding. Integrity We conduct all activities honestly, truthfully, and ethically. We treat everyone with dignity and respect.
7 Non-profit under IRS Code 501 c(3) AIAA Corporate StatusNon-profit under IRS Code 501 c(3)Formed for Educational or Scientific PurposesLimited Lobbying PermittedNon-profit Postal RatesNo Corporate Income TaxNotes:AIAA is a non-profit corporation, incorporated in the state of New York. We qualify as a non-profit under IRS code 501 c(3), which covers educational and scientific organizations. We are allowed to conduct only limited amounts of lobbying (5% of revenue), but since our primary purpose is the archiving and distribution of scientific knowledge, we usually don’t come close to the limit.We are able to take advantage of non-profit postal rates, an important savings on mailing the magazine. We do not pay Federal or State Corporate Income Tax, but we do pay most other taxes including Real Estate, personal property, sales taxes, employer social security taxes, etc. Contributions to AIAA or the Foundation for which the individual does not receive a direct benefit do qualify as tax deductible, depending on the individuals situation.
8 Professional Members (FY2002 & FY2010 dues increase years) Ended FY08 with 29,499 professional members18% are international6% are female*17% are age 35 & under21% are new to AIAA.*increase from previous year37% from direct mail, sections, and other targeted outreaches, 29% conference registrations, 11% student upgrades, 21% web, 2% from Professional Development coursesSection Officers can assist by reporting to AIAA Staff reasons that their Section members are not renewing and the names of persons who might be interested in becoming involved in the new areas.Retention rate - 78%. Retention of those that receive a complimentary membership from conferences is very low. Student to Professional Upgrade retention is improving. Association Average is around 80%

The Section Chair or RAC Rep brings this information to the quarterly RAC meetings (2nd circle). There, the Regional Director, Deputy Directors, and Section reps within the Region discuss their reports. The Regional Directors present this information at the RSAC meeting (held Jan, May and Aug). If any of these items need to be presented to the AIAA President and other Board members, the VP-Member Services will discuss this during the BOD meeting (also held in Jan, May and Aug).This is a 2-way flow of communicationSection RAC RepresentativesSection

77 Congressional Visits Day AIAA’s annual member-driven policy outreach activity to Congress and the Executive Branch.Allows CVD participants to converse with key decision makers in Congress on the matters that mean the most to AIAA. Visit teams are organized by state or Technical Committee (TC) discipline. PPC allocates some funding for a set number of CVD participants.AIAA is well-positioned to communicate matters of aerospace policy and critical technical issues in an objective and effective manner.AIAA’s newest grassroots program, August is for Aerospace (A4A) allows members to continue the discussions they started at CVD by encouraging interaction between members and elected officials during their August recess.A4A helps display the local impact of the aerospace sector on lawmaker’s communities, increasing the effectiveness of the messages delivered at CVD.Each year, nearly 150 AIAA members from across the United States travel to Washington to educate Congress and the Administration on the importance of the aerospace industry to our country.AIAA strongly believes that because of our long history as the principle aerospace professionals society and its unique membership structure, the Institute is educating Congress on critical aerospace issues vital to our country’s economic competitiveness.CVD is an opportunity for aerospace engineers and scientists to communicate their technical expertise to policymakers on issues that are of critical importance.
78 Congressional Visits Day Each year, at least 150 AIAA members from across the United States travel to Washington, D.C. to educate Congress and the Administration on the importance of the aerospace industry to our country’s national and economic security.CVD provides aerospace engineers and scientists with an opportunity to offer their technical expertise to policymakers on a wide range of issue which are critically important to our nation.AIAA strongly believes that because of our long history as the principle aerospace professional society and its unique membership structure that the Institute is well positioned to converse with Congressional decision makers on the important issues facing our community.
