3 Director/Deputy Training: Goals & Objectives
To develop the skills required to effectively lead a TAC Directorate. To learn about the resources and materials available at AIAA. To gain new ideas on how to energize your Directorate’s activities. To network with fellow TAC leaders.

4 What is the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)?

5 Aeronautical Sciences
Origins Institute of Aeronautical Sciences American Interplanetary Society American Rocket Society – Founded 1930 Institute of the Aeronautical Sciences Founded 1932 Formed AIAA 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 Integrity Our Core Values Excellence 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 Status Non-profit under IRS Code 501 c(3) Formed for Educational or Scientific Purposes Limited Lobbying Permitted Non-profit Postal Rates No Corporate Income Tax Notes: 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 members 18% are international 6% are female* 17% are age 35 & under 21% are new to AIAA. *increase from previous year 37% from direct mail, sections, and other targeted outreaches, 29% conference registrations, 11% student upgrades, 21% web, 2% from Professional Development courses Section 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.

AIAA Board of Directors Vice President–Member Services Region Directors Vice President–Member Services Region Directors, Deputies, Liaisons Region & Section Activities (RSAC) Region Director Region Deputy Directors Section RAC Representatives Region Activities Committee RSAC is the acronym for the Region And Section Activities Committee. The VP_Member Services serves as Chair of the RSAC and advises the Board on policy matters pertaining to Regions, Sections, Member Services, Career Enhancement, Young Professionals activities of the Institute....and coordinates plans for the continued growth and welfare of the Sections and the members. Starting from the bottom- the Sections circle: Sections gather information about events, successes/lessons learned, local issues, or concerns. 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 communication Section RAC Representatives Section

74 TC Funding Request Form

75 Constraints on Using TC Money
May maintain own funds independent of AIAA corporate Without AIAA oversight or control or recourse to AIAA corporate resources Cannot legally bind the institute Must file TC tax return and pay taxes as appropriate at all levels Funds must be used to promote the charitable, educational or scientific purposes of AIAA May not hire employees No contracts, salaries, compensation etc. to TC members or families without 2/3 vote of the TC at a regularly scheduled meeting Work with AIAA Secretary to negotiate agreement to use own EIN under AIAA Group Exemption Number

76 Public Policy May not directly or indirectly carry on any activity not permitted by an organization exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code No more than 20% of annual AIAA budget used for explicit lobbying activities AIAA has only 3 registered lobbying representatives TAC coordinates all activities with Public Policy Committee to assure it meets AIAA requirements and is within lobbying regulation guidelines AIAA historically stays away from taking positions on specific programs Ensuring reasonable & continued level of R & D funding Issues impacting critical technology or negative effects on aerospace professionals Voice of technical credibility on key issues (The “Honest Broker” on Aerospace issues) Federal employees are encouraged to obtain a ruling or waiver from their agency or department prior to engaging in any AIAA-related advocacy activity Individual AIAA members or TCs may contact legislators but must assure that their communication is not construed as an official AIAA policy position 3 lobbyist - Steve Howell, Ross Bell and Chris Schons

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.
