Report: First Organizational Meeting
Friday June 19, 1998 10 am - 4 PM
Air National Guard Base
Bradley International Airport, Connecticut
Dear Friend of Aviation and Space Education,
Our first organizational meeting at Bradley International Airport
was quite successful. Representatives of eight state aviation councils gathered to
report on activities in their own states, and then to review the charter for NASEA and
select its first elected directors and officers.
We also decided to have quarterly directors' meetings, in
September, December, March, and June, with the March meeting likely to be rescheduled to
coincide with our annual membership meeting. Currently we plan to have the annual
meeting in conjunction with the National Congress for Aviation and Space Education, which
will be held in Orlando, Florida in 1999.
Current activities for NASEA include completion of applying for
IRS 501 C 3 tax exempt status, revision and expansion of the website, development of
officers' manuals for each elected officer, and deliberating how to best support
individual state councils.
Most existing state councils have now expressed interest in
joining NASEA or have sent in their applications. We have revised our state council
list to indicate the current information for each group, and noted which have sent in
membership applications. If you see incorrect information please let us know,
and if you or your group wishes to join as a voting or supporting member of NASEA please
print out and complete our membership application, which is
available on this website. At this time there are no dues required - we ask only
that your group supports our objectives and wishes to participate.
Please copy this information to your group's board members.
These pages are available on the website www.nasea.org
and can be printed out for others. A printed booklet containing the pages can also
be requested via email. If you know of state councils that we have missed in the
listings on the web site please fax or mail this information to them so they might join
NASEA and/or attend our meetings as well. And please send their names, websites, and
address information back to us so we can expand our listings. We will list all such
groups whether members of NASEA or not.
Thanks for your interest and participation! We hope to see
you at one of our meetings or at other aviation and space education events in the near
