Speaker: Mr. Daniel Palomo, of the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau, will ask “is Houston ready to host the IAF 2018/19 Congress”. IAF is the International Astronautical Federation and its IAC meetings draw thousands of people to the host city to discuss spaceflight research and industry. Mr. Palomo will discuss his plans to attract this amazing event to Houston, and he’d like your advice.


This is a chance for us to meet each other in a relaxed friendly environment and talk about why we love space and planes. Lots of fun for the family!
Membership Drive:  Please invite your coworkers and friends to this event! This is their chance to learn about the amazing events we have lined up this year. We’ll raffle away a full year’s membership at the event to anyone not currently a member!
