Regional Deputy Director
Responsibilities



Advise and assist Sections with technical programs
(e.g. symposia, lecturers, local TCs).


Communicate with the Technical Officer for each
section as often as possible. If there is no Technical
Officer, maintain a meaningful and continuing liaison
with appropriate individual(s) in the Sections.


Collect and disseminate information on other Regional
technical programs/activities that may be useful to local
Sections in formulating or improving their local
programs.


Develop an "ideas that work" list for the Sections.

Alert Sections as to when a technical meeting will be in their
area.


Encourage Sections to set goals/objectives for technical
programming and to communicate said goals/objectives to
the Deputy Director.


Participate in the Regional Leadership Conference.


Convey information from the Technical Activities Committee
(TAC) meeting to the Regions and Sections. Communicate
Region and Section activities to the Committee.


Attend at least two meetings of TAC. At these meetings,
report on sections, technical activities, actions taken, and
pertinent information from the RAC meeting.

22

Challenges for TAC and RSAC


Little overlap between TAC and RSAC activities


In general, those who are active in Technical
Activities are less active in Sections and visa
versa (there are exceptions)


While TAC conferences occur in near active
Sections, we do a poor job of reaching out to the
Sections and Regions


Poor utilization of our Regional Deputies

23

Areas for Collaboration


Promoting Young Professional activities


Support YPC events and receptions


Facilitate their participation in our committees


They are the key to our Institute’s future


Technical Activities speakers list


Augment Distinguished Lecturers list


Region/Section sponsored sessions or
tracks at Technical Conferences


Joint TAC/RSAC Workshops


Last one held at ASM in January 2007

Brainstorm Session


What are your ideas???

AIAA Event Model and Conference
Portfolio Transformation

Briefing to AIAA Regional Leadership Conference

Basil Hassan

AIAA Vice President Technical Activities

3 August 2012


The Need for Change …


Our profession is evolving and AIAA must change
with it


More emphasis in the industry on integrating systems and
disciplines. AIAA must be in a position to support these growth
areas.


Our membership numbers are in slow decline and we are not
retaining membership in the young professional ranks.


Our conferences have evolved to more focused events that only
attract a portion of the aerospace community.


Many in our profession, primarily those in industry (who make
up nearly half our membership), do not find our current
conference offerings relevant to their jobs.




26

How TAC Responded to Need for Change


Sent out surveys to those who attend AIAA events and
those who don’t and asked them to comment on their
value and relevancy


Performed an assessment of event portfolio using
survey feedback


Held a workshop in January 2012 to discuss a new
event model


Engaged with TAC and Institute stakeholders for solicit
more feedback


Did more assessment



27

How TAC Responded to Need for Change (cont.)


Defined principles/goals for new events


Ensure our Institute is
relevant

to aerospace professionals


Ensure our conferences
integrate

a spectrum of topics of
interest to the profession (technical disciplines, systems, policy,
operations, etc.)


Ensure our overall events provide meaningful professional
development and
interaction

opportunities to the broad
aerospace community


Ensure our events are financially
viable


Ensure that our conferences are
“must attend”

events for all
those in our profession and can accommodate expansion into
new technology and program areas

28

How TAC Responded to Need for Change (cont.)


Developed a “best
-
of
-
the
-
best” hybrid approach


Consolidated and Integrated Models were most favored
of models discussed at workshop


Hybrid model combines the best attributes of both
models


collocate conferences within an overarching
umbrella “Forum”


Ensures alignment to principles/goals for new event
model


29

Implementing the Change


AIAA Board of Directors approved moving to
new “hybrid” event model at its 10 May meeting


Transition starting in January 2014


Have the opportunity to start making changes
with 2013 events (e.g., Space, Aviation)


Starting to assess and implement new
approaches for the 2014 events


30

Planned Forums


AIAA
Science and Technology Forum Exposition
(Winter)


open meeting


AIAA Defense and Security Forum and Exposition
(Winter/Spring)


classified meeting


AIAA Aviation and Aeronautics Forum and
Exposition (Early Summer)


open and
some US
-
only sessions


AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum and Exposition
(Mid Summer)


open and some US
-
only sessions


AIAA Space and Astronautics Forum and Exposition
(Late Summer)


open and some US
-
only sessions


31

Program Structure for Forums


Three
-
Tiered Structure


Plenary



provides the aerospace professional insight
into the opportunities and challenges that face the
aerospace industry


Integration



provides the aerospace professional the
ability to engage in cross
-
cutting topics and solutions to
system level challenges


Discipline



provides the aerospace professional the
opportunity to engage in technical exchange on
focused topics of interest



32

How You Can Help


Understand that all areas of the Institute are
stakeholders in the success of the new event
model


Think of ways events can help regions and
sections and vice versa


Identify section activities to have at events that
come to your area


Identify activities within event that help advance
RSAC’s goals
