This year's LCASE theme is be "Priming the Pump - Strengthening Tomorrow's Aerospace Workforce."

There are opportunities and innovative programs to meet these challenges. Join us to address the future of aviation and space education." - Kenneth J. Cook, President NCAE

The 2007 conference will begin with an evening reception on Friday September 14 at 6:00 PM featuring guest speaker Alex Min, the CFO/VP Sales and Marketing for Terrafugia, Inc. The conference sessions begin at 8:00 AM Saturday September 15, with opening remarks provided by Paula Lewis, Deputy Assistant Administrator for Regions and Center Operations at the Federal Aviation Administration.

The presenters include Dr. Guy Smith of the University Aviation Association, Dr. Kendall Starkweather of ITEA, Dr. Carlos Manduley from the FAA, Karen Elzey of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and many more. They will discuss such topics as workforce development, implementation of education programs, case studies of successful programs, and concepts for the future. Attendees will also participate in two roundtable discussions on these and other topics.
