In February 1987, a group of former Langley employees began working with the Office of External Affairs to establish a Langley Research Center Alumni Association. Gary Price, External Affairs initiated creation of such an organization. Their efforts led to the formation of the LAA.
The acting Chairman of the Board of Directors was William J. Boyer, and the committees and chairs were: Finance, Edmund A. Brummer; Membership, Domenic J. Maglieri; Nominating, Charles B. King; Program, Donald H. Ward; Social, Abraham Leiss. Betty Joyner was acting secretary/treasurer. These officers served until Jan. 1988 when an annual membership meeting and election of a Board was held.
The LAA’s purpose was to develop, maintain, and enhance the relationship among former employees of the Langley Research Center and provide a mechanism for the Center to maintain contact with former employees. It also provided an organized way for members to support special events at LaRC and activities of mutual interest.
All former NACA/NASA employees of LMAL/LaRC are eligible for membership. Former contractors with 5 or more years of continuous LaRC support are also eligible. The dues were set at $5.00 per year.
The LAA is an active alumni organization today, with strong NASA Langley Research Center support. The LaRC external affairs office is a key partner in LAA success.
