ACM Partners and Industry Advisory Board

ACM’s approach is to achieve growth and prosperity for our ecosystem through partnerships. We are always seeking strategic partnerships that help enhance the capabilities and offerings of our global development center and provide value to our ecosystem of customers and stakeholders. Partnerships can include key customers, service partners, infrastructure & equipment providers, sponsorships, and long-term tenants.

Partnerships that meet a certain criteria  have the opportunity to be represented on the ACM Industry Advisory Board (IAB) where they play a significant role in helping to guide ACM's strategic direction by providing vital input on improvements to the facilityand services, implementation of new technologies & capabilities, development of industry standards &best practices, events, research, and industrial tech park.

ACM IAB Vision

Convene key leaders across the mobility ecosystem in order to shape the future state of ACM and to best service its stakeholders in changing the mobility landscape.

ACM IAB Mission

The ACM IAB’s mission is to bring investment partners together to gain their strategic and operational guidance on testing, standards, and education related to future mobility. Engaging diverse representatives from industries will lend ACM a unique lens into the rapidly evolving mobility space, provide guidance as the landscape changes, support ACMs intention to be a world class convener of the mobility ecosystem and facilitate connection and collaboration of partner organizations to advance technologies and capabilities in the space.

IAB Committees

The possibilities of collaborative activities through the development of committees within the IAB support further industry integration and the development of programs and solutions that can create the impact needed to move the industry forward. The IAB has two committees, with room for additional committees based on IAB request, including:

Standards Committee
