AIAA YP Forum Experience
• TAC Workshop in 2012 highlighted disturbing long-term trends in AIAA
membership and conference attendance
 Young professionals (YPs) comprise just 17% of AIAA membership
 YPs are poorly retained
• The AIAA YP Forum Experience is an initiative to engage YPs
who have just entered the workforce in an enhanced and
personalized conference experience that encourages a continued,
long-term interaction with AIAA.
• Proposal to achieve this involves three components:
 One-time defraying of the cost to attend Forum attendance through reduced
registration costs
 Kickoff event
 Pairing of the YP with a technical expert, who will help show the YP the
ropes of AIAA and Forums
• SATTC is in discussions with the YPC to move this idea forward.
TFPC Interaction
• In Feb. 2013, the SATTC was contacted by Lynn Unrau
(Cessna Aircraft), chair of the Transformational Flight
Program Committee (TFPC)
 TFPC is composed of professionals with an interest in
advanced, transformational future aerospace concepts.
 TFPC membership is aviation-centric
 Major focus: How transformational concepts (e.g., point-to-point
air transportation, personal air vehicles, autonomous airplanes)
can bring future benefits to society.
• TFPC had teleconference on Tuesday, March 19
• Sarah Arnac (SATTC/TFPC Liaison) attended.
BOD Elections, Award, and Fellow Nominations

• ComicCon (Christian)
• Aerospace Tech. Pocket Guide and Presentation
(Grant, Restrepo)
Slide contributed by Steve Justice
Aerospace Technology Impact Initiative
• Vision – Quantify the societal impact of aerospace
technology on the “general quality of life” and in
particular, how AIAA members contribute to that
• Goal - Gather information from the various groups
within AIAA to generate “success stories” of aerospace
technology impact with a focus on the contributions of
the AIAA and its members.
• Strategy – Create an award to help incentivize the
membership to provide that information.

AIAA SAT TC Booth at Pittsburgh ComicCon
• The AIAA SAT TC will have a booth at the 2013 Pittsburgh
ComicCon to be held 27-29 September 2013.
• The SAT TC will work with AIAA to prepare booth materials this
spring. We are also open to materials from TC members that are
appropriate for distribution to a non-technical audience.
• We hope to have the first draft of the Society & Aerospace
Technology Pocket Guide available for distribution at the booth.
• Anyone interested in attending the ComicCon to help run the
booth should contact John Christian at
