Public nominations now are being accepted from U.S. citizens and organizations for potential membership on an advisory group that will represent the perspectives, interests and expertise of industry and other non-federal entities to the National Space Council.

NASA recently established the Users’ Advisory Group (UAG) to advise and inform the National Space Council on a broad range of aerospace topics, including the impacts of U.S. and international laws and regulations, national security space priorities relating to the civil and commercial space sectors, scientific and human space exploration priorities, and ways to bolster support for U.S. space priorities and leadership in space. The UAG is a Federal advisory committee established pursuant to the Federal Advisory Committee Act. NASA is sponsoring the UAG on behalf of the National Space Council.

Between 15 and 30 members will be selected to serve in the capacity of either a Representative or a Special Government Employee (SGE). Representatives will come from non-federal organizations, such as private industry, and represent the perspectives and interests of their communities. SGEs will be selected for their individual knowledge and expertise in their relevant field to provide objective advice.

To obtain the procedure for submitting public nominations, and for more information about the National Space Council Users’ Advisory Group, visit:

The deadline for NASA to receive all public nominations is Jan. 10, 2018.

For any questions, please contact the UAG Designated Federal Officer/Executive Secretary, Jeff Waksman, at or 202-358-3758.
