Media representatives are invited to attend a Town Hall event with NASA's Glenn Research Center (GRC) Director Dr. Julian Earls, NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe, U.S. Senator George Voinovich and GRC employees on Tuesday, October 12 at 10 a.m. in Glenn's DEB auditorium.
The Town Hall event will focus on the NASA Flexibility Act, signed into law by President Bush on February 24, 2004. Sen. Voinovich sponsored the bill. It allows NASA more flexibility in recruiting, retaining and rewarding a new generation of engineers, scientists and managers vital to accomplishing the agency's mission of exploration and discovery. At the conclusion of the event, Administrator O'Keefe and Sen. Voinovich will be available briefly to answer news media questions.
Following the event, Administrator O'Keefe and the senator will tour Glenn's Electric Propulsion Laboratory. There will be another brief media opportunity at the tour's conclusion.
Media desiring to participate should contact Lori Rachul or the GRC Media Relations Office at: 216/433-2901 by 2 p.m. EDT, Friday, October 8.
