WASHINGTON (August 22, 2001) – Volunteers to
support the leading global space business
conference are being sought by the Space
Foundation, officials announced today. Nearly
one hundred volunteers are needed to fill a
variety of roles at the International Space
Symposium, October 29-31 at the Reagan
International Trade Center in Washington.

The symposium is presented by the Space
Foundation in association with Space News, the
American Astronautical Society and more than 30
international space agencies and organizations.
NASA is host national space agency.

The Space Foundation has a long history of
providing opportunities and experiences for
volunteers to the community. In Colorado, more
than 300 military personnel annually support the
National Space Symposium in a volunteer
capacity. Symposium volunteers can gain
additional industry knowledge, as well as access
to the symposium conference sessions and exhibit
center. Students, the military and general space
enthusiasts are encouraged to apply. Volunteers
at the symposium will assist the Space
Foundation in registration, security, media,
exhibitor and speaker support.

The Space Foundation is one of the world’s
leading space organizations, supporting industry
leaders, space professionals and educators in
their efforts to promote all facets of space –
commercial, national security and civil. The
Space Foundation’s National Space Symposium is
recognized around the world as the premier U.S.
space policy forum, and the International Space
Symposium is quickly gaining similar acclaim.
