Connect to BSC
Bird Strike Committee USA (BSC USA) is a volunteer organization dedicated to providing leadership in managing wildlife strikes to aviation. The BSC USA Steering Committee sets policy and is responsible for the actions of BSC USA in accordance with the bylaws. The Steering Committee includes an Executive Committee, members from eight classes of membership, a non-voting Standing Committee, and Emeritus members who work together to further the mission and objectives of BSC USA.
The five-member Executive Committee includes three voting members of the Steering Committee—the Chair, Vice Chair, and Immediate Past Chair, who are empowered to lead the Steering Committee and take action on behalf of the Steering Committee. Two non-voting positions, the Secretary and Treasurer, support the Executive Committee.
In addition to the Executive Committee, the Steering Committee includes representatives from eight classes of membership identified in the bylaws: the Aerospace Industry, Airlines, U.S. Airports, U.S. Department of Defense, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), U.S, Department of Agriculture/APHIS/Wildlife Services (USDA WS), Private Sector Services, and a general classification. Each membership class will include three representatives and function as a subcommittee within the greater Steering Committee.
Five standing committees are responsible for implementing activities identified by the Standing Committee: Membership, Annual Confrence, Operations & Policy, Research & Development, and Education & Outreach. Standing Committee membership does not include voting privileges.
Invaluable support is also provided by Emeritus Members, who are nominated and elected by voting members of the Steering Committee. Emeritus members are voting members who graciously lend their expertise to the committee and its work in support of aviation wildlife hazard management.
