Event description

Description

The Alliance for Space Development (ASD), the National Space Society (NSS), and the Space Frontier Foundation (SFF) are sponsoring the annual March Storm Washington DC Blitz March 11-15, 2018. Sunday March 11 will be an all-day training event, followed by up to four days of Congressional visits. Blitzers are asked to commit to a minimum of 2 days of Congressional visits, but those days can be picked from among March 12-15. The training session will take place at the Holiday Inn Arlington, but it is otherwise not an official March Storm hotel, and attendees are encouraged to stay wherever is convenient financially.

March Storm 2018 will support the Alliance for Space Development 2018 objectives:

1. Establish an Ultra Low Cost Access to Space (ULCATS) program based on public-private partnership and streamlined governmental policy and regulations;

2. Ensure a gapless transition from ISS to private space stations in LEO, with NASA assisting with development and serving as an early customer

3. Enable cis-Lunar development through a series of programs, such as:

A. A public-private partnership to develop and demonstrate a re-usable lander based in cis-Lunar space

B. Setting a price that NASA will pay for commodoties (water, etc.) at locations in cis-Lunar space

C. Purchasing data gathered by private companies on Lunar resources (water, etc.)

March Storm is the premier citizen-run, space related Congressional visit event of 2018. The training will prepare you to meet with Congresspersons and staffers even if you have no prior experience. Experts will coach you how to make the best pitch for our future in space. Please join us in Washington DC March 11, 2018 and see how you can make an impact.

For questions, please contact Amador Salinas, ASD Advocacy Coordinator, at asalinas@allianceforspacedevelopment.org. For registered attendees, feel free to join the March Storm 2018 Facebook group to share hotel and flight information, coordinate ride-shares, and otherwise become familiar with the other attendees prior to the event.
