The Long Island Association (“LIA”) celebrated its 90th Anniversary last year. Founded in 1926, our mission is to support growth, economic development and infrastructure investments on Long Island, and to advocate for tax reforms and regulatory relief to improve the local economy and strengthen our business community.
The LIA encourages all Long Islanders to participate in our democracy. That means paying attention to what our elected officials are doing and letting them know when we agree or disagree. Government officials at the federal, state, county and local levels really can be made responsive to the concerns of ordinary citizens but only if those citizens make the effort to tell them what they want. The Long Island Guide to Public Officials and Economic Development, published by the LIA and TD Bank, helps Long Islanders do that by making it easier to communicate with a wide range of elected officials and others who serve in government.
CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (“CPI Aero”) is engaged in the contract production of structural aircraft parts principally for the U.S. Air Force and other branches of the U.S. armed forces, either as a prime contractor or as a subcontractor for other defense prime contractors. CPI Aero also acts as a subcontractor to prime aircraft manufacturers in the production of commercial aircraft parts. CPI Aero has over 35 years of aerospace manufacturing experience. Our competitive advantage lies in our ability to offer large contractor capabilities with the flexibility and responsiveness of a small company, while staying competitive in cost and delivering superior quality products.
