Corporate Events organizes, coordinates and executes all major AIA events and meetings, including bi-annual Board of Governors and Membership Meetings, the Supplier Management Council Meetings, AIA Executive Committee Meetings, and major events at international trade shows.
Legislative Affairs works with members of Congress and staff, administration officials, and other organizations to advocate on behalf of AIA's positions on issues vital to the aerospace and defense industry.
The Hazardous Material Target List (HMTL) has been developed to
support and enhance the management of risks associated with the use
of hazardous materials (HAZMAT) in Products and Services,
consistent with National Aerospace Standard 411 (NAS411)
Hazardous Materials Management Program and MIL-STD 882E, Task
108 Hazardous Materials Management Plan.
This NAS is intended to cover the identification of the HMTL and
to provide guidance on its use. The HMTL has been developed to
provide a common starting point for the identification of specific
requirements to limit risks and/or report hazardous materials in
Products and Services, as required by contract.
