The Port Authority is seeking interested individuals to serve on a new advisory council for Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), a panel that will include a cross-section of participants from among airport travelers, business operators, community members and local residents.
The Newark Liberty International Airport Advisory Council, known as EWRAC, is scheduled to launch in November as a 12-month pilot program. Its members will be tasked with providing input to facility management on operations, customer service issues and community impacts from operations. The meetings will be held quarterly, on Wednesdays of every third month and generally in the evening. EWRAC seeks to empanel a diverse cross-section of between 15 and 21 members.
Applications to participate on the council must be received by October 26, 2021. To obtain an application, click here or pick up an application at one of the airport’s Welcome Centers, located in Terminal A, Level 2; Terminal B, Level 1, or Terminal C, Level 1. Completed applications can be submitted via e-mail to EWRAC@panynj.gov or via regular mail to EWR Advisory Council, Newark Liberty International Airport, 1 Conrad Road, Building One, 2nd Floor Newark, NJ 07114.
Council membership will be open to customers who regularly travel through Newark Liberty and to community residents who live within the surrounding neighborhoods. Meetings will provide local communities the opportunity to express concerns and ask questions related to the airport.
They will also provide an opportunity for the Port Authority to educate and inform the surrounding communities regarding projects, activities and initiatives being undertaken at airport facilities, and business and employment opportunities, as well as challenges facing the airport.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
