UPDATE: Events of Interest: Week of August 8-12, 2011

UPDATE: The Smallsat Conference has been added.

With Congress out of town until after Labor Day and most other people on vacation, there are only a couple of events of interest in the coming week. For more information, check our calendar on the right menu or click the links below.

Congress is not officially in recess. The House and Senate are meeting in pro forma session, but no legislative business can take place without unanimous consent so none is expected in the coming weeks. The members are back in their States and districts hearing directly from constituents about how they think things are going in Washington. This is where elected representatives learn what is important to their electorates, so if you have an issue you think is important, you might want to take advantage of the opportunity to meet with them.
