The Council has access to over 1500 corporations developed over 22 years of proprietary, best practices research. The Working Council’s strategic research agenda is set only by its members which consists of over 450 CIOs. Membership will help NASA shape strategic debate and accelerate tactical implementation by using knowledge and tools available through the WCCIO.
