To NSS Members and anyone who supports a Citizen’s Space Agenda (a message from NSS Executive Vice President Dale Skran):
I hope you all are having a good week. I wanted to give you all an update of where things stand on recruiting for March Storm 2017.
At this time there are 17 official registrations, with around 10 others verbally committed that are yet to register. There has been a heavy emphasis on getting more students involved this year, and that is showing in the registration numbers so far, as almost all of those currently registered are students. We are seeing excellent support from universities around the country, with some providing travel money to allow students to participate.
The more students the better, but this is a shout-out to everyone else to sign up now. The sooner we know how many are coming, the more meetings we can set up. This is a critical time for the space program and we need your voice in Washington the week of March 12th!!
Although we are requesting a sign-up fee this year, students are free with an ID, and scholarships are available for those who cannot afford the fee.
Please forward/distribute this message as widely as possible. All those who support a Citizen’s Space Agenda are welcome to participate without regard to prior membership in any space related group.
As a reminder, here is a link to the March Storm registration page:
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.
