Note: The Moon Society is an official affiliate organization of this year's conference, and Moon Society members can register for the conference at current NSS member rates. The Society will have an exhibit table and Society members will be making several presentations.

Moon Society members are chairing two tracks at this conference:

The Moon Track - Dave Dunlop
Space & Environment Track - Dr. Peter J. Schubert

The Moon Society is hoping that this publicity will translate into many new members for the Moon Society, and more subscriptions to Moon Miners' Manifesto.

And possibly more NSS chapters will join the NSS-MMM family, now counting nine:

Lunar Reclamation Society (NSS-Milwaukee), Publisher
Oregon L5 Society (NSS-Portland)
Minnesota Space Frontier Society (Minneapolis - St. Paul)
Sheboygan Space Society (Sheboygan, WI)
OASIS (Los Angeles) (Organization for the Advancement of Space Industrialization & Settlement)
Philadelphia Area Space Alliance (PASA)
Chicago Space Frontier Society
Denver Space Society
San Diego Space Society
