We are kicking off the new year with NASA Stennis Space Center Capitol Day in Jackson on Wednesday, March 2nd from 7:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at the Capitol. Due to COVID restrictions participation is limited.  However, Partners will be there to represent our members.

We are working with NASA staff now to plan an informative Annual John C.

Doors open at 7:30 a.m. with the program starting at 8 a.m. until 9:30 a.m.  There will be a grab-n-go breakfast provided to all attendees.  There is no fee to attend but sponsorships with reserved seating and outreach benefits are available.  Just click here to make your reservation as a sponsor.  You will receive an email prior to the May 4th meeting to register to attend so stay tuned for more information on this meeting.

Please save the dates for our 2022 Meetings.  I hope you will contact our staff if you would like to be a sponsor and host.  Meetings will be at 3 p.m. with After Hours networking at 4 p.m.

December 14, 2022 at INFINITY Science Center – Annual Meeting 

We are also working with our colleagues from across the U.S. to plan for the Annual Citizens for Space Exploration Annual DC Fly-in. This year we expect these meetings to be a hybrid of in-person and virtual meetings on May 16th – 18th. Citizens for Space Exploration (CSE) is a multi-state, grassroots space advocacy group of concerned citizens. Our mission is to meet with members of Congress and their staff to inform and educate them about the importance of a robust human space exploration program and a fully funded NASA budget.  We also advocate for the funding of Navy operations and other funding priorities at Stennis and Michoud Assembly Facility. Please let our staff know if you want to be a part of these meetings.

Through Partners, you are part of a group who represent American taxpayers committed to continued national investment in space exploration.  Over the past few years, America has made significant progress in manufacturing, testing, and launching key components of the Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System, commercial vehicles, as well as more scientific work aboard the ISS.  All of this contributes to making the Artemis program and deep space exploration possible.  We are proud of the role that employees at Stennis and Michoud are playing in these efforts.
