- NBAA's Leadership Council
Who is in Charge of Business Aviation’s Future? You Are. No one can convey the essential nature of business aviation to local communities and the national economy better than the business aviation community itself. In order to facilitate policies and perceptions that promote the growth of business aviation, our industry must be an aggressive advocate in Washington and with the media. If we don’t take charge of our own destiny, others will. The Leadership Council significantly strengthens NBAA, allowing the Association to carry out its mission and facilitate policies and perceptions that promote the growth of business aviation. Made up of companies and individuals as diverse as the business aviation community itself, the Leadership Council offers an opportunity to become a leader in the industry. One hundred companies have already stepped up as leaders in our industry. Learn how your company can join them and become a Leadership Council Member today: www.nbaa.org/membership/leadership.
