About the NASA Alumni League

Our Organization

The JSC Chapter of the NAL was formed in 1989 under the leadership of former JSC Director Gerry Griffin. The JSC NAL was founded as a natural next step for those retiring from service to the NASA Johnson Space Center focusing on charitable, scientific or educational purposes that support the general mission of JSC along with providing a communication network of past employees of JSC. The NAL is always looking to connect or reconnect with retirees that are not current members. Membership is easy!
