Space Camp Alumni Association Board Announces Annual Call for Applications to the 2021 Board

The Space Camp Alumni Association Board (SCAA Board) is pleased to announce that one (1) board member position will become open to fill an existing Board position vacated by a current member completing their term. 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.

SCAA Board Chair, Christopher Key, had this to say about the openings, “Everyone knows that 2020 has been a difficult year.  Similar to a single star in a dark night, good deeds and good news shine brightest in adversity.  This year more than any previous year, Space Camp alumni have shown our value by applying our passions and energy, fueling the Save Space Camp campaign, and showing what nearly 1 Million alumni can do.  The AAB members come from as varied of backgrounds as every camper any given week of camp, each coming together for a single purpose – former campers now professional adults looking to influence and give back in a meaningful way to ensure opportunity for the next generation.  I am fortunate to work with and continually amazed at the caliber of the AAB members.  The number of and quality of applicants we receive validates so many aspects of the alumni as a whole.  I am thankful for all who want to work with us as we continue this journey in connecting alumni and building the association.

We greatly appreciate the service of our outgoing Board member.  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 open spot is a regular voting member, with a three (3) year term beginning January 1, 2021. To be eligible, a regular member must be a graduate of Space Camp, Aviation Challenge Camp, Space Camp Robotics, Space Camp Cyber Security, or an affiliate program, or be a former U.S. Space & Rocket Center staff member or current volunteer.

The SCAA Board seeks a diverse and inclusive membership, and you are not required to live in or near Huntsville, Alabama, the home of the 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 Zoom, and once a year in-person, conditions permitting, during the Rocket City Summer Fest held annually at the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL. Next year’s event will be held subject to group gatherings being permissible, date to be determined in July 2021.
