Griffin Removes NASA Advisory Council Members

Editor's note: Mike Griffin has told some members of the NASA Advisory Council that he no longer wishes to have them serve on the NAC. Griffin cancelled a meeting scheduled for 20 April 2005 and, 6 months later, has yet to announce who is on the new NAC or when it will meet. Griffin sent out the following letter informing NAC members of his decision:

"Dear ------- :

Thank you very much for volunteering to serve on the NASA Advisory Council. I hold the advice of the Council in high regard and believe it provides a vital service to NASA.

I have focused a significant amount of effort recently on the role of advisory groups within the agency. After much deliberation, I have decided that NASA would be best served by a Council that has a streamlined structure and is comprised of new members selected for their specific areas of expertise.

Your desire to contribute to America's space program is appreciated. Thank you again for your past service and I wish you the best in your future endeavors.


Michael D. Griffin
