  • Session Chairs and Judges for YPSE 2019

    The Mid-Atlantic Section is looking for volunteers to serve as judges and session chairs for YPSE on November 15, 2019. You are welcome to volunteer for either or both positions and to come for only part of the day if you cannot attend the entire conference. There will be two  morning sessions between 9 and 11:30 AM and two afternoon sessions between 1:30 and 4:30 PM. Instructions and schedules will be sent out before the conference, you can ask questions via e-mail, and AIAA volunteers will be there in person the day of the conference to answer questions and help in any way we can. 

    Please follow the 2 steps below to let us know if you are interested in either or both positions:

    1. Register for the conference at ypse19.eventbrite.com There is a reduced registration fee of $35 for all volunteers.  Please indicate your preference for session chair or judge when you register.
    2. Send an e-mail to midatlantic+YPSEJudging@gmail.com or vaughan.aiaa.ma@gmail.com indicating the times you are available, your affiliation (university or company), any preference on technical disciplines for your assigned sessions, and your professional level (graduate student, young professional, professional). If volunteering to be a judge, also include years of experience beyond a bachelor's degree (e.g. under 1, 1-5, 5-10, 10-20, 20+).

    You can also send general inquiries to either e-mail address if you need more information to help you decide to volunteer.

  • 70th International Astronautical Congress

    Calling All Student Members!!

    The 70th International Astronautical Congress (IAC) is less than 60 days away so we're seeking a handful of volunteers to help make this event a great success! Volunteers are needed 18–25 October. 

    AIAA is seeking volunteers for:

    • Greeting Attendees
    • Room Hosts
    • Directional Facilitation
    • Bag Stuffing

    Don't miss your opportunity to volunteer for IAC 2019 as you’ll have the opportunity to network with international peers and space leaders across government, industry, and academia!

    Volunteers will receive equal time attending Congress activities and sessions to the time that they volunteer. For instance, if you volunteer for one full day (two shifts) you will receive a full day at the Congress.

  • Mid Atlantic Section Update

    Hello Mid-Atlantic Section AIAA members! 

    We are happy to announce that revitalization of the section is underway.  Currently, efforts are centered on the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel MD, however section wide events will be hosted in locations open to the public.

    As a part of this revitalization effort, we are asking for nominations for Board member positions.  Please email AIAA.midatlantic@gmail.com with your nominations for Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer.  As per the bylaws, self-nominations will not be accepted. Elections will be held in two weeks via an online vote and we will also be asking everyone to ratify our new bylaws, which can be found on our website. If inclined, please review them at your earliest convenience. These bylaws are written by AIAA Headquarters and have been ratified across most of the country. If you have any questions, comments, concerns regarding the bylaws, please let us know.

    Along with revitalizing section leadership, we are planning on hosting the annual Young Professionals, Students, and Educator Conference for Region I in November.  If you are interested in attending the event, please go to the event page and fill out the interest form.  We will be sending out information about registration later this summer but are looking to get an estimate on how many people would be interested in attending.

    If you have any questions, please contact us!
    Thank you!
