What is LMLA?

NMA is made up of many chapters of all sizes.  The chapters are formed at companies and organizations in fields as diverse as aerospace, energy, health care, education, government, and defense.  Chapters from various Lockheed Martin companies make up a large part of the NMA.

The LM Aeronautics Lockheed Martin Leadership Association in Fort Worth is chapter #249 of the NMA, and was first formed on July 15, 1942.  LM Aero’s other chapters include Marietta, Palmdale, Greenville, and Automated Flight Service Station in Fort Worth.

You can think of LMLA as an organization within an organization.  All members are (or were) employed by LM Aero, and yet their LMLA jobs are all volunteer and in addition to their “regular” jobs.  Each member (over 2300 at present) helps support the work of LMLA, some working more actively than others.
