“How NASA’s New Leadership Team is Ensuring America’s Leadership In Space in Partnership with Commercial Space Industry”
Please join us Wednesday, May 26, 2021, 12Noon eastern, for our keynote speaker, Alicia Brown, NASA Associate Administrator, Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs.
Ms. Brown brings an impressive mix of both government and industry experiences to her current position – working on an array of space-related issues, from NASA, NOAA, FAA Space Office to the Office of Space Commerce. She also has worked extensively with Administrator Bill Nelson during his time as US Senator and as ranking member, Senate Subcommittee on Science and Space. It is fair to say that Ms. Brown is integral to executing President Biden and Administrator Nelson’s vision for the agency in the coming years.
WSBR looks forward to hearing her views on the challenges facing the agency, its priorities and how the commercial space industry can most effectively support the agency’s efforts going forward.
