The Coalition for Space Exploration announced on Wednesday that ATK’s George Torres and Boeing’s Bill Beckman will lead the coalition’s advocacy efforts in 2013.

The Coalition has partnered with the NASA Visitor Center Complex Consortium to launch a national public engagement video contest, according to a Coalition statement.

Torres, ATK’s aerospace group vice president, is Coalition chair and has been an active member since it was formed eight years ago.

“I’m proud to lead the Coalition as we continue to advance the dialogue surrounding the importance of space exploration to our country,” he said.

He has led the communications organizations at Rockwell International, Boeing, Hughes Space and Communications and The Aerospace Corp.

He has also written two books on the U.S. space program that earned him the Journalism Award of Excellence from the Aviation/Space Writers Association.

Coalition deputy chair Beckman serves as director for NASA Programs in Boeing’s Washington, D.C., operations office.

He brings more than 25 years of experience in aerospace, business development, marketing and field operations to the Coalition.

“I’m pleased to join George in guiding the Coalition to having this conversation with America,” Beckman said.
