One key role AIA plays is as an aggregator -- bringing together stakeholders to dicuss topics of importance to the aerospace and defense industry. Last week was a busy one for AIA in that role -- we hosted meetings and participated on a panel that demonstrated AIA's value contributing to policy debates on the major issues of the day.
Our AIA staff comes to the association from a variety of backgrounds. Five of us are fortunate enough to have ties to the space program. At its heart, NASA is an organization that allows people to go places that have never been visited before, and to see astounding things that have never been seen before.
The week of July 13-17 was very busy for supporters of the Ex-Im Bank of the United States.
