    AIAA sponsored reception in Room 2168 Rayburn House Office Building


    Every year, AIAA members – engineers, scientists, researchers, students, educators, and technology executives – travel to Washington, DC, for a day of advocacy and awareness with national decision makers.
    Your participation, enthusiasm, and passion remind our lawmakers that aerospace is a key component of an economically strong and secure nation. If you are interested in the future of your profession, the advancement of technology, the furthering of scientific research, and the strengthening of our nation’s security, this event is for you!

    “I always enjoy coming out to the Hill and participating in the event. Every time it’s a unique experience and it’s great being able to advocate policies important to our profession.”

    —Braven Leung, pursuing doctoral studies in Aerospace Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology

    As in past years, AIAA will offer limited subsidies to help defray the cost of travel.
