SoCal Aerospace Days

March 20, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - March 24, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

The Southern California Aerospace Council (SCAC) has launched the inaugural “Southern California Aerospace Days” meant to highlight the Aerospace & Defense industry’s vital economic impact on our regional economy. Throughout the week, the SCAC and its partners will feature networking receptions, elected official meet & greets, open houses, a startup “pitch” event, and resolutions by local and regional municipalities. These events will bring together Aerospace & Defense industry leaders throughout LA County.
With over 400 active participants from industry, labor, government, not-for-profit, and education, the SCAC exits to defend southern California’s status as the aerospace capitol of the world, protecting and strengthening aerospace and defense industries, firms, suppliers, and workers currently present in our region, as well as positioning the Southern California mega-region to be the world’s hub for emerging sectors, technologies and occupations that will drive the industry in the future. Here’s how you can get involved:

  1. Host a partner event! We will be happy to advertise your event with our network and to provide marketing materials to display at the event. Event ideas can include a roundtable discussion, a panel or singular speaker, an open house or facility tour, a reception with your company’s executives, or the like!
  2. Work with your local elected official(s) to pass a resolution in support of the Aerospace and Defense industry and our local military installations. Draft language and sample format can be provided by LAEDC. Contact us here for that information.
  3. Attend our events and represent your organization!
