The AAIR Executive Committee has developed a suite of portfolios. Portfolios are allocated to Executive Committee members on an annual basis based on interest and expertise.
The management of portfolios is reviewed at each subsequent Executive Committee meeting that coincides with the Annual Forum in any given year.
The AAIR Executive Officer completes most day-to-day activities outlined in the portfolios, and each portfolio leader liaises with the AAIR Executive Officer.
Brief portfolio reports are provided to the AAIR Secretary at least one week prior to each Executive Committee Teleconference as per the reporting schedule.
All portfolio leaders liaise with the AAIR Executive Officer in regard to their specific portfolios; however, the AAIR President will have overarching responsibility for overseeing the AAIR Executive Officer.
The Publications, Communications and Social Media portfolio leader is responsible for overseeing the production of forum proceedings, annual reports, newsletters, bulletins, the blog and AAIR social media pages. AAIR currently has three social media pages: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn (including a company page and two showcase pages for Data Warehousing, Business Intelligence & Analytics SIG and the Load Management SIG), and Flickr. Publications include Proceedings publications from the AAIR Annual Forum (when available), the upcoming initiation of a more formalised Annual Report to be presented to AAIR members at each AGM, and any other publications that AAIR may initiate from time to time.
