National Points of Contact USA
We are thrilled to welcome you to the homepage of the United States of America’s SGAC community! As National Points of Contact (NPoCs) for the USA, we are here to serve you, and to do all that we can to enable your success both within the SGAC and in the greater global space community.
- To advocate for the American SGAC membership base to the greater global space community.

- To develop international partnerships and to support the continued development of a peaceful, inclusive, and global space community.
NATIONAL HISTORY AND TRADITION OF SPACE
Since the dawn of the space age, the USA has been a trailblazer across the governmental, defense, commercial, private, non-profit, academic, and not-for-profit sectors of space exploration. This is entirely because of the talents, capabilities, and spirits of its people. Whether from our universities, our government, or our private citizens, there is no doubt that a collective American passion exists in pursuing a future among the stars.
Fundamentally, our jobs are to best represent you in your SGAC involvement. Beyond serving as your voice to the United Nations and greater SGAC communities exists a passion to serve as resources in your careers and lives. Our vision is to create a strong network of space professionals that is better equipped to support global objectives and international partnerships geared towards the continued peaceful and open use of outer space. Beyond this global desire exists a unique passion for better enabling the collaboration of the American space community with itself; by supporting one another we can continue to support global space objectives.
