Please join us for National Aerospace Week, September 14-20, 2014! We would like to invite your organization to join us in recognizing the enduring value of America’s aerospace and defense industry.
National Aerospace Week – the third week in September annually – was established by the Aerospace Industries Association in 2010 as an opportunity for the aerospace industry and its supporters to recognize the enormous contribution that the industry makes to America’s economy, competitiveness and national security. To support the effort, both houses of Congress issued a resolution on September 13, 2010 establishing the third week in September annually as National Aerospace Week.
Since its inception, National Aerospace Week has been a rallying call for interested groups nationwide to demonstrate their support for the industry. As in previous years, we need you and your organization to express your support for the industry during National Aerospace Week by hosting events, communicating with elected officials – nationally and locally – about the value of the industry and sponsoring other activities. Let us know about your events so we can post them to our national calendar where you will also find additional information to support your activities.
We’re also asking that you, your co-workers, members of your community and others join the Second to None Coalition in the time leading up to National Aerospace Week to make our voices on critical issues heard even louder in Congress and with the Administration. For nearly three years, the Second to None campaign has helped change the tide of the debate on support for our industry in Washington, D.C. The fight, however, is not yet won. The campaign has launched a new platform to build a coalition of like-minded supporters throughout America.
We look forward to hearing from you and having you join us and others around America to sponsor events and activities during National Aerospace Week 2014!
