AAC Organizational Structure
AAC is organized to represent the collective interests of its members
The Council is guided by a ten-member Board of Directors, comprising the Executive Committee, four Firm Directors, two Supplier Directors and one Professional-Member Director.
AAC thrives because of the participation of its members. Several committees, made up of representatives from member firms, determine the direction of Council projects and activities.
The committees are:
Academic Outreach Committee
Stimulate interest in aluminum metal finishing in the academic community and their students considering a future in electrochemistry, metallurgy, chemistry, materials science and their related engineering disciplines. The AAC is a professional organization which deals with the science, technology and business of light metal surface finishing, primarily aluminum anodizing. The AAC believes that by engaging with the academic community, we can benefit from each other in a variety of ways.
Bringing a diverse assemblage of volunteers' skills and expertise to the table, this committee's programs include the Anodizing Conference, technical publications, and networking events.
The value proposition offered by the Council to its members and to prospective members is essential to AAC's success.
The support of members' efforts to market anodized aluminum has long been at the core of the Council's activities. The Promotion Committee continues that work while also being involved in other activities including:
Advocacy & Government Affairs Committee
The mission of the committee is to learn and communicate to AAC members any and all issues on the forefront that may affect the Council members’ business in relation to chemicals, emissions, safety, and regulations including advocacy in governmental affairs.
