Sponsor Your Way To A One-On-One Meeting With Federal Employees

This story started as a post on Linkedin. However, some readers thought it should be a story worthy of a broadcast to a larger audience, so here goes.

I sent an email to the Federal Aviation Administration legal asking if the FAA should
be advertising and market for a program that peddles access to government employees.

From the AUVSI Partner Prospectus –

“The UAS Support Center (previously the Resource Center) will also be staffed on the digital platform with the ability to review relevant information as well as schedule 1-on-1 meetings with FAA representatives.”

Your tax dollars are spent to market this paid access opportunity!
