Where's AADC?

One wonders why AADC is not listed as exhibiting at this summit - if you really want to attract commercial launches, don't you want to take every opportunity to promote and publicize your facility? Or has the KLC truly become a strictly military-use site as was predicted by many Kodiak citizens as early as 1995?

The 2009 Governor's Aerospace Summit is coming to Spokane on October 6 and 7.
