NASA Alumni League-JSC Chapter

The JSC Chapter of the NAL was formed in 1989 under the leadership of former JSC Director Gerry Griffin. The JSC NAL was founded in order to provide local retired NASA personnel the ability to use their talents and experience to tell NASA's story to the public, to contact legislators regarding their views on space-related issues, testify to key committees of Congress and, if called upon, to perform independent assessments of space-related issues.  Membership is available to any person who worked for NASA as a federal civil servant or was a Department of Defense (DOD) employee assigned to NASA.
