    The following are highlights from JSC Director Mark Geyer’s note to JSC employees dated 4/22/2021.

    • The JSC Pandemic Incident Response Group (PIRG) recommended and Geyer has accepted to begin the transition at JSC to Stage 2 on April 28, 2021. Stage 2 means:
      • JSC is still in a maximum telework mode and capacity will be limited to a 25% total occupancy at JSC and WSTF.
      • Going to Stage 2 will reduce overhead burden with adding mission critical tasks. 
      • Employees are instructed to telework unless the supervisor notifies an employee that work requiring his/her physical presence has been approved. Employees are being notified of their status and are requested to sign a form acknowledging JSC guidance and policies that must be adhered to on site in order to maintain safety for the entire team.
      • Masks and physical distancing are still required, regardless of an employee’s vaccination status.
    • Bottom line—JSC is still closed to anyone who is not a current employee, including NAL members!  However, the building 110 Badging Office is open and accessible to NAL members who wish to renew their badges, which are still good for “free” admission to Space Center Houston.

    NAL members can't get onsite but you can pick up up your Alumni Badge in building 110 during regular office hours.  Please wait at least 5 business days after receiving notification from NAL that your membership has been processed before going to JSC to pick it up.

    If you have an interest in easily helping preserve the JSC historical collection within the UHCL Archive, here is your opportunity.  On June 22nd NAL representatives (Cyndi Draughon, Sylvia Stottlemeyer, Denny Holt and Greg Blackburn) presented UHCL with a check for $2,200 outside the Alfred R Neumann Library to establish and kick off fund raising for a NAL sponsored endowment to support the JSC Collection via student internships. UHCL Associate Director of Development for University Advancement Richard Zalesak, JSC onsite Archivist Mark Scroggins, and Neumann Library Executive Director Dr. Vivienne McClendon were also in attendance. The full UHCL press release can be found at

    https://blog.uhcl.edu/news/uhcl-nasa-alumni-league-launch-human-space-flight-archive-internship-endowment.

    The goal of our endowment is to raise a minimum of $25,000 in five years which would then be used to forever pay for a student intern(s) to work alongside the UHCL Archivists to formally support the growing JSC Collection. This 2020 NAL gift also included monies to pay for a student intern for the Fall and Spring semesters in parallel to the endowment fund raising activity.  This intern will augment NAL volunteers that are already helping the UHCL Archive given their limited resources and the high volume of donations of NASA related information.

    If you would like to be part of this unique opportunity, you can give directly to the endowment via the Give to UHCL website at

    https://giving.uh.edu/uhcl/

    Once there just scroll down and click on “Search Funds” which is to the right of “Top Funds” and then type NASA in the “Search for a Designation” box and you will see our endowment pop up.  Click on the endowment name and then follow the instructions for giving.  Every dollar counts!

    If you have any questions regarding this NAL activity please do not hesitate to contact Greg Blackburn at greg.c.blackburn@gmail.com.
