Over the past few days there have been some leadership changes in the National Space Society. The executive director, Paul Damphousse, has resigned. He has only been in this position for about a year, and gave no specific reason for leaving. On a more local note, our own Veronica Ann Zabala-Aliberto has resigned from her position as an at-large director as of this past weekend.
From my perspective, and while NSS does important things on a national scale, it is at the grass roots level that we can be most effective in promoting a strong American space program. So no matter who serves in leadership roles, we really need active members at the chapter level to actually make things happen. So thank you to the folks who came to last Saturday’s meeting, and we hope to see you and many others involved in future local activities.
I’d love to see your comments here with your thoughts on these changes and any other topics you’d care to discuss.
