In addition, ASAC gathers input from stakeholders on the effectiveness of security procedures and develops recommendations for possible improvements.”
“I am honored to continue representing GBTA on TSA’s Aviation Security Advisory Committee,” said Michael W. McCormick, GBTA executive director and COO. “As TSA builds on its successes in recent years with trusted traveler programs, it is vital for TSA to hear from the business travel industry to ensure that air travel remains safe and as efficient as possible for business travelers.”

Other representatives announced at the same time as McCormick will serve terms of office that will expire on April 9, 2016.
