Greetings to the LAA family.

On Tuesday, November 14, 2017, we had an excellent Meeting of the Langley Alumni Association, from 11:30 am to about 1:00 pm in the NACA Room in the Cafeteria at NASA Langley Research Center. The speaker for this meeting was Dr. Joseph Heyman, who described the world-class,  non-destructive laboratory that his group set up at LaRC. We had a terrific turnout of 54 members and guests.










The Nominating Committee, Chaired by Daniel Palumbo,  submitted a list of candidates for the Board of Directors and the list was approved at the October Board Meeting. The candidates are:  Carrie Walker Creedon; Fred  Jones; George Allison; Dave Reubish; David Rudy; and Jim Pittman. They will be voted on by the general membership at the Annual General Meeting in January 2018.

The Langley Research Center NACA and NASA Hall of Honor (HoH) is an important partnership between the LAA and LaRC to honor the pioneers and contributors to LaRC over the years. We are currently working to develop a permanent display of the Honorees at LaRC.

You can find more information about this class at the NASA LaRC Hall of Honor website.
