Happy August! I hope the summer is off to a superb start (and you and your loved ones are staying cool and comfortable in this heat).
I am Irene Chan, the 2019-2020 AIAA Houston Section Chair. Along with the Executive Council (EC), I am at the ready to harness that awe-inspiring energy from witnessing the technological leaps and bounds we have made in the aerospace industry since the Apollo program. The EC is starting to ramp up the planning for the 2019-2020 year to sustain that enriching appreciation for anything and everything related to aerospace.
Are there activities the section should invest resources on? In addition to our Annual Technical Symposium, are there other technical committee efforts you would like to see?
If you would like to help shape the future of aerospace in various Texas counties and polish that leadership experience, mark your calendars for the EC retreat on Tuesday, August 27, 6pm and contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
There are plenty of open seats at the EC table and we would love to have you join the merry party! The open positions on the org chart (PDF) barely scratch the surface of available opportunities. (Please tell me that being a webmaster jam master for the section is your calling.)
Earlier this year, the bylaws were updated to be consistent across all sections. To formally adopt the updated bylaws, the section needs to:
- review the updates (Please see AIAA Houston Bylaws 2019.pdf)
- send in their votes on whether or not to approve these updates
By Monday, August 26, 5pm, please send your questions, comments, and votes to email@example.com.
Thank you for making this series of informal chats a success! We are certainly continuing this during the 2019-2020 year. Please join us:
Seabrook Classic Cafe: 2511 Nasa Rd 1, Seabrook, TX 77586
I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to translate that enthusiasm for aerospace into another realm of reality.
