DEF 2017

DEF2017 is next week! This year’s conference includes remarks by Admiral (Ret.) Bobby Inman, Warren Kat, panels discussing lessons from the field, our participation based breakout sessions, and as always, DEF’s great happy hours. We’re also celebrating our fifth annual conference by looking at DEF’s role in the defense ecosystem and rolling out new efforts. Tickets are still available.

Our friends at The Strategy Bridge are recruiting an associate editor and social media manager. Their team is well established and makes a significant contribution to the national security community’s dialogue. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who wants to add their voice.
