State Chapter Formation

MISSION: To educate, coordinate, facilitate, and advance the aerospace community within each state through policy development, educational discussions, and focused events, involving state elected and other government officials.

GOAL: Establish active state Chapters in all 50 states and 5 territories within 5 years. The chapter’s primary goal will be to host at least one aerospace educational event each year for their state legislature. Over time, each Chapter is to become a key resource for state policy makers. The Chapter is to become the repository of information for the state’s aerospace community and connection to ASA.
