The MARPA Board created several new committees, and gave an existing committee a new direction, at the Board meeting on September 29. These Committees represent your opportunity to “be a part of the action” and to take a more active role in shaping the future of the PMA industry.
Several members have suggested that MARPA should be better marketing the Association and its service, as well as marketing the PMA industry. The Marketing Committee will help create a marketing plan for Board review, and will help implement the Board-approved plan.
The new Technical Committee will review government proposals and provide technical feedback to help support high-quality MARPA comments. This is an important group because their feedback will help shape a wide variety of FAA policies.
The COS/SMS Committee is an expansion of the COS Committee. It will continue to promote COS systems, but it will also serve as a resource to the FAA Aviation Rulemaking Committee that is charged with developing a SMS rule (the new paradigm for safety systems).
We need your help! Please contact Katt Stanley at (202) 628-6777 if you would like to volunteer for any of these committees.
