Rebecca Keiser, Chair
Office of International Science and Engineering
I would like to begin by stating what an honor it is to have been selected to serve as Chair of Women in Aerospace for the next two years. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of serving you in this capacity – it is a role that I do not take lightly.
Over the past ten years, I’ve had the pleasure of holding an array of leadership positions with WIA. Each of these positions has allowed me the opportunity to learn about the mission of the organization and to spend time getting to know each of you as members. With the assistance of a talented and hard-working Board of Directors, I am eagerly looking forward to what the next two years holds for this special organization. As Chair, I will be working with the Board to develop a plan to expand the information and services that WIA provides its members and to further increase WIA’s role in the aerospace community. I look forward to providing you more information about this plan in the near future.
