Dear Space Ambassador Program Participants
We need your presence at the National Space Society International Space Development Conference (ISDC) 2009, in Orlando, Florida on May 28 –May 31 for what promises to be the biggest and best citizens’ space conference of the year.
The International Space Development Conference (ISDC) is the annual conference for the National Space Society and has grown into the largest public space conference of the year. It is a national gathering for space-interested leaders and citizens to connect, re-energize and make plans for the future.
There will be a Space Ambassadors Program reception on Thursday evening, a participation workshop scheduled during the conference to review the program participation rules & guidelines, a extensive conference program of presentations/panel discussions, along with a myriad of opportunities for networking. If you are in the space business or want to be, ISDC 2009 is the place to be.
Since the National Space Society in partnership with Virgin Galactic announced the formation of the Space Ambassador Program at the International Space Development Conference in Washington D.C. last year we have been busy transforming the concept into a viable program. As of now we have over 3,600 very excited volunteers and enrollment is still growing. Space Ambassador Program Our goal is to train volunteer Ambassadors to go into their own communities and make presentations to students, interest advocacy groups, and civic organizations on the opportunities space offers for helping to provide for a positive future. A future they can be a part of making real. Our mission is to foster and excite our young people to seek educational opportunities in science, technology, engineering, aerospace and aeronautical fields. We need to inform these young Pioneers about the current and future opportunities needed to grow the Space Industry in both Government and Private sectors.
Hope you can come join us at ISDC 2009!
Space Ambassadors Program Director
