The Astronomy Foundation, the telescope industry’s first and only trade association, will hold its annual meeting during this year’s Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF) in Suffern, New York. The foundation meeting is scheduled for Saturday evening, April 18, 2015, and will push a number of initiatives forward.

Founded several years ago by then-Celestron CEO Joe Lupica and several others, the foundation aims to promote awareness of and involvement in the astronomy hobby. This year the group celebrates finally receiving its 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and also the energetic entrance of Executive Director Steve Cullen, who is pushing forward an outstanding set of programs. More on that to come . . .

The meeting will consist of the foundation’s officers and board: President David Eicher, Vice President Karen Jennings, Secretary Rick Hedrick, Executive Director Steve Cullen, and Board Members Scott Kardell, Vic Maris, Mike Reynolds, and Craig Weatherwax.

There will be some exciting news to come following the meeting. Stay tuned.
