Space & Satellite Professionals International (SSPI) has announced the promotion of Tamara Bond-Williams to Director of Engagement. She previously served as SSPI’s Membership Director since 2001 and, over the course of 21 years of service to SSPI’s members, her role and responsibilities have expanded to meet the changing needs of the association.
In the last four years, SSPI has introduced Corporate Membership and Corporate Partnership, which provide a dynamic set of benefits and opportunities that can be leveraged by companies and their employees. Additionally, in 2022, SSPI introduced the concept of a multi-platform campaign, which allows a concentrated content focus on a particular topic to be leveraged by companies. In both cases, the level of engagement support needed by companies to make the most of their opportunities is high and demands a comprehensive approach to developing and sustaining that engagement.
The same is true of other new SSPI initiatives. The Space Business Qualified online training course, developed in partnership with GVF and SatProf, delivers a 360-degree view of the industry to new hires and newly-promoted employees. In addition to its benefit to individuals, it fills a gap in the training content available to human resource departments and requires a deeper engagement with HR professionals in our industry. A new SSPI Job Board and International Space Directory program will further expand the organizations and individuals that SSPI must effectively serve.
