TSA Announces New Members of Aviation Security Advisory Committee

Transportation Security Administration Administrator David P. Pekoske announced 31 members to serve on the Aviation Security Advisory Committee (ASAC), which provides recommendations for improving aviation security methods, equipment and procedures.
“The Aviation Security Advisory Committee plays a vital role in helping TSA focus on risk-based security,” said Pekoske. “I thank the outgoing, current and newly appointed members of the committee for their service and dedication to helping TSA strengthen its layered approach to aviation security.”
The ASAC, a statutory committee under P.L. 113-238, enhances TSA’s security posture through consultation with key partners on aviation security matters, including on the development, refinement, and implementation of policies, programs, rulemaking, and security directives pertaining to aviation security.
TSA is transitioning to staggered membership terms, with approximately one-half of the members serving one-year terms and the other half serving two-year terms. In the following year and thereafter, all appointments will be for two-year terms.
