Benefits to Joining a Committee
Every Regular Member can make a markable difference in how our industry operates now and well into the future by participating in one of NCBFAA’s three primary Standing Committees—Transportation, Customs, and Regulatory Agencies. These three committees also consist of myriad legislative- and regulatory-specific subcommittees. Participation in NCBFAA Committees and Subcommittees also maximizes the benefits of Regular membership and offers opportunities for professional growth, collaborative discourse, and lifelong friendships among industry colleagues.
Q: What level of membership is required to join a NCBFAA Committee or Subcommittee?
A: You must be a Regular Member to join a NCBFAA Committee or Subcommittee, as well as to attend any of the meetings.
Q: What is the time commitment?
A: Most key NCBFAA Committees meet monthly via tele-conference for an hour, as well as on an ad-hoc basis when necessary, while Subcommittees generally meet less frequently depending on the urgency of the legislative or regulatory topic to be addressed. The Committees also meet in-person prior to the Annual Conferences and Government Affairs Conferences.
Q: Can I join more than one Committee?
A: Yes, but it is recommended that you chose one NCBFAA Committee to focus your involvement. Within the various Standing Committees, you may participate in one or more Subcommittees, as your schedule permits.
