Introduction

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.

"Surviving and Thriving in Uncertain Times," the conference theme, describes the landscape in which defense professionals are anticipating and adapting to changes, assuring their personal value to their organizations, and keeping their companies relevant. To soar above the focus on sequestration, furloughs, cutbacks, and more, we have to figure out how to do more than just survive—we have to thrive. Learn from prominent speakers representing industry and government at this one-day conference. Share ideas and information with peers from many parts of the nation.
