One Year Anniversary of the Space Force: Achievements and Future Challenges
Please join us on Wednesday, December 16, 2020, 12Noon EST, for a special speaker – Lt. General William J. “Bill” Liquori Jr., Deputy Chief of Space Operations, Strategy, Plans, Programs, Requirements, and Analysis, United States Space Force. That formidable portfolio includes overall responsibility for requirements and budget for the Space Force.
Given how much progress has been made by the Space Force, it is hard to believe that this December will mark the one year anniversary since the new service was officially stood up.
WSBR is most fortunate to have General Liquori – whose career includes an impressive variety of assignments, including the White House National Security Council – speak to the achievements of the Space Force in a short 12 months, while identifying the challenges facing the Space Force leadership in the months and years ahead. And, of course, we will be keenly interested in the General’s views on how space industry can best partner with the Space Force in helping to advance its critical mission.
