SCAAB Announces 2019 Annual Call for Board Members

The Space Camp Alumni Association Board (SCAAB) is pleased announce that four board member positions will become open to fill existing board positions vacated by current members completing their terms. We are reaching out to fellow alumni and former staff who may be interested in helping us to advance the alumni movement and support the mission of the Center.
SCAAB Chair, Dr. Andrea Hanson, had this to say about the openings, “The AAB is made up of passionate, successful Space Camp Alumni who were influenced in such a positive way as youth attending a Space Camp program that they want to give back in a meaningful way as professional adults. The caliber of applicants the last solicitations has elevated our accomplishments and ability to reconnect the alumni community, and we are excited to reconnect with four new alumni to fill these vacant positions.”
She added, “We greatly appreciate the service of our outgoing board members. Our alumni continue to amaze and inspire me with their passion and commitment to the Space Camp programs. It has been an honor to work with this board and the members that embody the spirit and values of what Space Camp is all about.”
The four open spots are regular voting members, with three-year terms beginning January 1, 2020. To be eligible, a regular member must be a graduate of Space Camp, Space / Advanced Academy, Aviation Challenge, Space Camp Robotics, U.S. Cyber Camp, and affiliated programs, or be a former U.S. Space & Rocket Center staff member or current volunteer. You must also commit to attending an annual in-person board meeting at the USSRC held in combination with the annual Rocket City Summer Fest.
The SCAAB seeks a diverse and inclusive membership, and you are not required to live in or near Huntsville, Alabama, the home of the Rocket Center.
The SCAA is a volunteer group, and is a working board. This means 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 An increasing number of other volunteer alumni are also working on these efforts. The board meets every other month via WebEx, and once a year in-person during the Rocket City Summer Fest held annually at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL.
