Ray Beck: Aerospace event success
July 29, 2014
To the editor:
The Colorado aerospace road trip to Northwest Colorado was a very successful three-day event. The Colorado Space Business Roundtable was supported by the Colorado Space Coalition, the Office of Economic Development and International Trade, the Colorado Competitive Council, Lockheed Martin, University of Colorado Boulder, CDOT's Division of Aeronautics and CLUB 20. I want to thank the following sponsors, which included the Colorado Space Coalition, CU Colorado Boulder, Colorado Northwestern Community College, Yampa Valley Regional Airport, Jviation, TLC Carpet One and the Steamboat Springs Airport.
The CSBR mission is to promote growth of space and space-related industry in Colorado for existing and entrepreneurial businesses and activities, and serve as a forum for continued educational initiatives and opportunities.
I also would like to thank the staff at the Clarion Inn & Suites, The Memorial Hospital, the Craig Chamber of Commerce, the Craig/Moffat Economic Development Partnership and the Craig Daily Press for the promotion and support of this event. During this three-day event, participants met with Moffat and Routt County elected officials, businesses and community members. They toured Colorado Northwestern Community College's Craig campus, YVRA and the Steamboat Springs Airport. I would also like to thank Joe Rice (Lockheed Martin), President Russell George (CNCC), Bonnie Petersen (CLUB 20) and Dave Ruppel (YVRA manager) for their support throughout this entire process. Thanks for joining me in your visionary thinking and positive input.
