Advisory Board

One of PARTNER's great strengths was its advisory board. Members included aerospace manufacturers, airlines, airports, national, state and local government, professional and trade associations, non-governmental organizations and community groups. They united in the desire to foster collaboration and consensus to jointly advance environmental performance, efficiency, safety and security.

The board participated in PARTNER strategic planning, annually reviewed the research portfolio to ensure that it met the highest standards of scholarly excellence, and provided recommendations for balancing the portfolio in response to national and international needs. Yearly it reviewed PARTNER core competencies to provide recommendations for enhancing the capabilities of the research team. The board also provided guidance on financial strategy and operations, and performed other studies and reviews as needed. It served PARTNER managers as a sounding board, a confidant, and a ready source of unvarnished critique and advice.
