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 any other publications that AAIR may initiate from time to time. The portfolio leader is also responsible for overseeing the management of the AAIR social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn (company page, showcase pages, and the SIG LinkedIn groups). Also included in this portfolio is liaison with the AAIR Executive Officer regarding the ongoing management and maintenance of the AAIR website and its contents and associated resources, such as the AAIR domain name, website, and email hosting. The Editorial Board rests under this portfolio.
The professional development portfolio leader is responsible for liaison and forward-planning around the AAIR Annual Forum and AAIR SIG Forum, as well as any regional AAIR events, online webinars, other training opportunities, the AAIR fellowships, and other professional development opportunities.
