The latest LAA By-Laws were reviewed by the general membership and approved by the Board on January 11, 2022.
In February 1987, a group of former Langley employees began working with the Office of External Affairs to establish a Langley Research Center Alumni Assn. Gary Price, External Affairs, initiated creation of the organization which led to LAA.
The acting Chair of the Board of Directors was William J. Boyer. The committees & 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 LaRC employees & provide a way for the LaRC to maintain contact with former employees plus a way for members to support LaRC special events & 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/year (now $10).
The LAA is an active alumni organization today, with strong NASA LaRC support. The LaRC external affairs office is a key partner in LAA success.
