The Dee Howard Foundation Advisory Council

About the Advisory Council

The DHF Advisory Council is composed of representatives of the Aviation Industry (primarily from the San Antonio Region) and representatives of academic institutions in the San Antonio Region that offer academic and/or technical skills training courses focused on aviation and aerospace.

The role of the Council is to facilitate dialogue between trainers and prospective employers and to advise the DHF as to how it can add value to the community by collaborating with others to implement its mission statement.
