Industry Advisory Board

The Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide Industry Advisory Board was created in June 2008. The primary role of the Board is to provide advice and guidance to Embry-Riddle Worldwide on course content and programs, ensuring they are relevant and meet the needs of today’s aerospace leaders and business professionals.

Meetings have been held at Atlanta, Georgia Airport Authority; Boeing’s facility in Long Beach, Calif.; Federal Express's headquarters in Memphis, Tenn.; Lockheed-Martin’s manufacturing facility in Fort Worth, Texas; the Metropolitan Nashville (Tenn.) Airport Authority; NetJets' corporate headquarters in Columbus, Ohio; United’s headquarters in Chicago; Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada; and ERAU’s Worldwide Headquarters in Daytona Beach, Fla.
