AIMM Executives attend Maryland Space Roundtable with Barbara Mikulski

Maryland Space Business Roundtable April 18 2016.jpgOn April 18, AIMM executives attended the Maryland Space Roundtable (MSBR) luncheon where speaker Barbara Mikulski delivered a compelling message about her remarkable career as the longest serving woman in the history of the United States Congress.

The Maryland Space Business Roundtable (MSBR) is a nonprofit organization for aerospace and technology businesses, universities, and individuals in Maryland as well as the surrounding national capital region that share a mutual interest in promoting a robust space community. The Roundtable provides a common ground for these companies to meet, interact, learn, and act on initiatives for future growth. Invited speakers and guests include prominent government agency leaders, elected officials and their staff, and aerospace industry leaders. These luncheons offer members the opportunity to host government guests in a one-on-one setting at their member table.

Senator Mikulski, the keynote as this month’s luncheon and a significant supporter for NASA and NOAA funding, spoke of her curiosity in science at an early age. An eruption of laughter soon followed when she spoke about the laws of gas. She noted, “Gas takes the size and shape of its container, which is a good lesson to know if you are in the United States Senate.”

You can view highlights of Mikulski’s keynote address here:

Mikulski was first elected to the federal House of Representatives in 1976, and in 1986 became the first woman elected to the United States Senate from Maryland. In 2013, Mikulski introduced the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2013, which passed in the Senate. The bill would reauthorize the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990 to provide block grants to the states to help low-income parents find childcare for their children. One of her most recent accomplishments, the Paycheck Fairness Act, was introduced on April 1, 2014, as a measure that aims to strengthen the Fair Labor Standards Act’s protections against pay inequalities based on gender. After serving five terms on the Senate, Mikulski retired March 2015.

Each month, the MSBR holds a luncheon event with invited government guests and speakers. To learn more about MSBR please visit. http://mdspace.org
