Starting Planning for the 2010 Policy Key Issues Notes for the TAC Executive Committee April 8, 2009 Phil Hattis, AIAA VP for Public Policy
2009 Congressional Visits Day Notes Attendance was way up from 2008 (160 in 09 vs. 112 in 08) The Member Participation Program (MPP) was well subscribed (52) Technical Committee/Program Committee (TC/PC) participation was limited · Only the Life and Physical Sciences TCs came as an organized team (6) · Seven other attendees identified themselves as TC members (one each from from 7 different TCs) · All 13 self-identified TC attendees used the MPP subsidy · More TC/PC participation could help the 2010 CVD to exceed 200 participants Dates for CVD 2010 are still to be finalized, but March 16-17 is currently being considered
2009 Key Issues: Objectives and Guidelines Develop Key Issues (KIs) of primary importance to our members · Need TC/PC and Region/Section ideas Include issues reflecting the key strategic plan policy initiatives Avoid narrow issues addressing specific local or corporate concerns Reflect a consensus of the entire Institute · TAC and PPC members will work together to screen the ideas Aim for fewer than 10 KIs on the final 2010 list · 2009 had 13 KIs because of late addition of the strategic plan policy initiatives This was too much to cover in individual congressional office visits Back up each KI with a more detailed information paper · Was successfully done in 2009 but: Most were first submitted too close to CVD to allow much editorial improvement The paper format guidelines may be updated based on comments received at CVD More TAC participation is wanted in the preparation of 2010 papers
