District Conference 2019
Join us for a fun-filled day of contests, education, recognition, and the election of next year’s leaders.
Keynote Casey Dreier, Chief Advocate & Senior Space Policy Adviser at the Planetary Society will be speaking on broadening our horizons and expanding our reach as we advocate for our causes. Although Casey is an expert at Space Policy, he is able to speak to how to mobilize volunteers and interact with government agencies to achieve whatever goals we have.
Casey is the public face of The Planetary Society’s efforts to advance planetary exploration, planetary defense, and the search for life. He educates and empowers the organization’s members to take political action. He writes, teaches, and speaks to The Society’s members, the public, and policymakers to impress upon them the importance, relevancy, and excitement of space exploration.
Casey helps lead the strategic planning of The Society’s policy and advocacy efforts. He works closely with The Society’s leadership, its Board of Directors, and other policy experts to craft the organizational positions and goals regarding the future of space exploration. He provides trusted analysis of the budgetary, political, and policy decisions relating to space, pursues original research, and works collaboratively to generate policy ideas and guidance for the U.S. space program.
