Jack Garman's List of Potential Speakers
- Gen. Jack Daley retired Marine General, retired NASA AA, and now head of Air and Space ! I would think a talk on capturing history would be really interesting to folks. NASM bio marine corps bio
- Gene Cernan last man on the moon; he s got lots of talks as I recall but I would think something about the rising and falling and rising interest in Apollo and Apollo history from his vantage point would be cool. http://www.aeispeakers.com/speakerbio.php?SpeakerID=1181 - Electrical Engineering from Purdue University - Chris Long. $30K + 1st class expenses (air fair, ground trans. ground car, hotel, meals).
- Dr. John McManus NASA CTO (different league: young, high ego, but with lead time might get an interesting talk about where NASA s IT infrastructure is going)
- Dr. Charles McKay Dean of the School of Science and Technology at the Clear Lake campus of the University of Houston; his forte is software engineering was one of the Ada pioneers and brought one of the first software engineering degrees programs into the mainstream.
- Kathy Tamer VP and CIO of USA; perhaps on the ease of working with NASA in spaceflight and where they view the shuttle program heading (as in winding down).
- Courtney Stadd former Chief of Staff and White House liaison for NASA; he almost never speaks in public (he s a target of NASAWatch), but he s got some really interesting insights on NASA from the political end.
