Maureen Riley, the executive director of the Salt Lake City department of airports, has been appointed to the board of Airports Council International-North America.

ACI-NA is a worldwide advocacy organization for air-carrier airports, promoting policies and providing services that strengthen the ability of air carrier airports to serve passengers, customers and communities.

"It is an honor to serve on the ACI-NA board," said Riley, who has led the Salt Lake department of airports since February 2007. "The benefit of this close interaction with other airport directors is immeasurable, and the ability to work together to impact the aviation industry is key to our collective future."
