Space CouncilThe Space Enterprise Council (SEC)

Who We Are

The SEC brings a unique voice to policy discussions that are centered on space and the innovative technology ecosystem. In both broad and more direct terms, the Council also provides insight on the economic and national security impacts delivered to Americans from our nation’s space program.

What We Stand For

  • Facilitating business relationships and networking opportunities between member companies and key Washington policymakers.
  • Keeping member companies apprised of the very latest activities and news impacting their industry via interactions with Congress, Federal agencies and the Administration.
  • Conducting monthly, closed-door, off-the-record meetings with key senior-level officials.
  • Formulating policy and budget positions which are briefed to Congress, Federal agencies and the Administration.
  • Promoting U.S. business to Brazil and helping forge partnerships between the two countries via our leadership position in the U.S.-Brazil Defense Industry Dialogue.


  • Monthly small group engagement with key government officials across the commercial, civil, and national security space portfolios.
  • Ability to impact government policy through timely deliverables.
  • Ability and opportunity to engage with CompTIA’s technology-focused communities.
