How do I register additional users to my organization's membership? 

Please send an email with the users' names and email addresses.  If the addition of more registrants changes the Tier level, an invoice will be sent that is prorated.  After payment, they will be sent a temporary user name and password to access the website within 24 hours.   If the addition of a new user name is replacing another user that has left the organization, let us know who needs to be removed.

For questions about membership, adding/deleting/modifying names on membership roster, organizations interested in learning more about the AAIA, and anything membership-related, send an email to

What is the difference between Group/Airport Membership and Associate Membership? 

Group/Airport Members make up the majority of our membership and are usually an airport or airport authority; but, also includes cities, counties, and states that oversee the airports in their region.  Each airport has a membership, and the people that use the membership benefits are registered members. 

Associate Members are generally consultants, like CPAs and specialists, that have an interest in airports.  An airport member needs to sponsor an Associate member before they can join.  Like the Airport Membership, Associate Members have registered members.

The membership designations are part of the by-laws that were created at the inception of the AAIA.

Why do I apply for membership? 

To assure that you are getting the right membership type and level.  In addition, the by-laws require that applications are reviewed by the Secretary.

Can I pay membership fees with a check? 

Yes.  Select "Bill Me" on the payment page, and you will be sent an invoice.  It will delay access to the website for new members.

Who do I contact with a billing question?

The Forum's email addresses look different.  Are they safe?

I am not getting emails from the AAIA. How do I go about "whitelisting" or "safelisting" emails from the AAIA? 

It depends on your email provider and/or security service.  Following is a link to an article from Constant Contact that explains the steps to take for numerous email providers/security services such as Outlook, Yahoo, and others:  Safelist Email Addresses.  Here is the same article copied into a Word document:  Safelist Email Addresses (Word Document).
