Boise, ID - The Boise Metro Chamber is proud to announce the appointment of Chamber President and CEO, Bill Connors, to the 2020 Intrastate Commercial Air Service Committee. Connors joins leaders within the state’s business and aviation industries to complete a study of intrastate commercial air service in the state of Idaho.
“Over the years, the issue of air service has been a priority for Chamber business members. I applaud Sen. Dan Johnson for his leadership in seeking a way to better connect Idaho businesses and citizens” said Connors.
In 2013 the Boise Metro Chamber established a Travel Industry Advisory Board, since its establishment, this board has consistently identified the lack of robust intrastate air service as a limitation for connecting commerce. Additionally, the Idaho Chamber Alliance has been a strong proponent of enhancing Idaho intrastate air connections.
Other Boise Metro Chamber members also have representation in this group including, Bank of Idaho President Jeff Newgard, Alaska Airlines Government Affairs Manager Scott Kennedy, Tamarack Resort President Scott Turlington, Boise Airport Director Rebecca Hupp and Idaho Chamber Alliance Executive Director, Caroline Merritt.
