Take Committee For Dulles Participation to the Next Level
Aviation and Airport Activities: A Look at What's Happening "Inside the Fence"
The Airport Activities Sub-Committee provides a vehicle for Committee for Dulles members to engage with, in a small group environment, staff and executives of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, representatives of the airlines serving IAD, and other airport-related organizations. The Airport Activities Sub-Committee works to keep the Committee for Dulles up-to-date on changes at the airport and issues that impact passengers, airline services, cargo, security and the like.
This committee generally meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 12:30 PM for a brown bag lunch and meeting, unless untherwise noted, in the MWAA Conference Room, 45025 Aviation Drive, Suite 250 (across from Dulles Marriott at the airport.) Contact Georgia Graves, 703-471-4700 x807 or John Senter, co-chairs for more information.
The Committee for Dulles Community Outreach (CFDCO) is a nonprofit corporation organized and operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes. The purposes of this program are to (a) to provide relief to the poor, distressed and underprivileged in the area of Washington Dulles International Airport, (b) to support other organizations conducting charitable activities, and (3) to advance education. We further our purposes under this program by conducting fundraising events in order to raise money for these purposes. In six years, CFDCO has awarded $177,500 in scholarships, and has contributed more than $40,000 to non-profit organizations affiliated with Dulles Airport.
To achieve our goal to advance education, the CFDCO awards scholarships to students graduating from high school and pursuing college. Recipients must be either an employee or the dependent of an employee of a business or agency operating at Dulles International Airport. Selection of the scholarship recipient is made by CFDCO’s scholarship committee. The Scholarship Committee reserves the right not to award the scholarship if it does not receive suitable applications. Finalists participate in an interview process before final selections are made.
Economic Development and Transportation
The Economic Development/Transportation Committee is concerned with issues “outside the Dulles Airport fence”. Through the monthly information exchange discussions and special guest presentations, the group members keep informed on the economic development and transportation issues facing the greater Dulles Airport region.
This committee generally meets the first Thursday of the month at 8 AM in the Committee for Dulles office. Contact Anita Grazer at firstname.lastname@example.org or the CFD office, 703-430-8749, for more information and to become a member of this subcommittee.
