The Alumni Advancement Board (AAB) has three seats opening for a term beginning January 2016. In order be eligible, a regular member must be a graduate of Space Camp, Aviation Challenge, the new robotics program, or an affiliate program, or be a former Space & Rocket Center staff member or current volunteer. We are reaching out to fellow alums and former staff who may be interested in helping us to advance the Alumni movement and support the mission of the Center.

The AAB is a volunteer group. The AAB is a working board, by which we mean that the members are    involved both in making decisions about a wide range of projects, outreach efforts, fundraising, and other activities, and in helping to carry out those plans (read more at www.spacecampalumni.com). An increasing number of other volunteer alumni also are working on these efforts. The Board meets most months by phone, and once or twice a year in person at USSRC.

If you are interested, please send a letter of interest as well as a CV/resume to us at: aabappl@spacecampalumni.com. Included in the letter, please explain why you are interested, your eligibility, and how you think that your background, experience, and skills will enable you to work with other Board members and volunteers to advance the goals of the AAB. The AAB seeks a diverse and inclusive membership, and you are not required to live in or near Huntsville, the home of the Center.

We are looking for individuals who truly understand and are excited to advance the AAB mission! The application deadline is November 20th, 2015. We look forward to hearing from you!
