The United States was forever changed 20 years ago on 9/11, and we were blessed to have many of those who responded to those horrific tragedies join us at the ASTORS Awards Luncheon. 2021.
In the days following 9/11, our nation’s critical protection needs catapulted us into new and innovative ways to secure our homeland – which is how many agencies and corporate organizations that are today the champions of the ‘ASTORS’ awards have emerged. .
Our 2021 keynote speaker delivered a moving and informative keynote from TSA Administrator and United States Coast Guard Vice Admiral (Retired), David Pekoske; to our attendees who have traveled across the United States and internationally, on the strategic priorities of the TSA’s 64,000 members to secure the transportation system, enabling safe and, in many cases, contactless travel.
