On March 22, AIA’s Space Division hosted its fourth annual Senior Space Leadership Meeting at AIA’s offices in Rosslyn, Va. The event joined together a wide range of space leaders from government and industry to discuss the challenges facing our nation’s space community. Since space is a domain that crosses institutional boundaries as well as geographical, this meeting served as a perfect platform for fostering candid conversation amongst stakeholders.
With senior-level government space leaders from nine major government space organizations and over two dozen AIA member company leaders in attendance, the gathering allowed for nearly two hours of interactive, high-level discussion with an emphasis on how the space community should respond to sequestration budget cutbacks, assure industrial base health and protect essential aerospace R&D activities. AIA plans to host a fifth installment of the meeting next year.
