SGAC Holds Its First Advisory Board Meeting at the United Nations

11 June, 2010

On 10 June, SGAC held its first Advisory Board meeting. During this inaugural meeting, the board was introduced to each other, established expectation for the role of SGAC’s Advisory Board, reviewed the current status of SGAC, and reviewed current SGAC direction and goals. The board members, many of who have seen the development of SGAC since its beginnings in 1999, were enthusiastic at the development and prospects for the organisation.

“SGAC began as a dream of young people who wanted to participate fully in space activities and a chance to see their ideas develop into policy, research, applications and programmes,” stated SGAC board member and Secretary General of the Regional Centre for Space Science and Technology Education for Latin America and the Caribbean, Sergio Camacho. “That was 1999. Today, only a decade later, the SGAC is a vibrant organisation that is turning into reality that which had been a dream. It is opening possibilities for young people, across language, cultural and geographic barriers and is still creating new goals Being invited to join efforts with SGAC, as members of its Advisory Board, gives us the opportunity to contribute to the attainment of these goals. I look forward to the experience.”

Clay Mowry, SGAC board member and President of Arianespace, Inc., added, “SGAC is already a dynamic grassroots organisation bringing a fresh perspective to issues impacting space applications. The advisory board is excited about taking SGAC to a higher level with quality programmes and events in support of the United Nations efforts in space.”


SGAC is enthusiastic about the support in strategy and direction that this board of distinguished international space sector leaders will provide for our organisation, as we head into our second decade of developing and representing the voice of the next generation of space leaders.

The next board meeting will be held during the last week in September in conjunction with the International Astronautical Congress.
