Executive Committee

The LSIC Executive Committee includes representation from each of the types of organization (industry, government, academic, or non-profit) that make up LSIC. The purpose of the Executive Committee is to ensure that the future direction of LSIC is in the best interest of its members while serving NASA's and the Nation's vision for sustained exploration of the Moon. The inaugural Executive Committee was selected by APL, in coordination with the NASA Space Technology Mission Directorate, from the member institutions and other relevant stakeholders to help broaden LSIC's reach in the community and rapidly initiate activities that integrate the breadth of expertise among Members and identify near-term goals.
