Description

Fellow NIDIA Members, in 2015 NIDIA started new initiatives to probe interest across our Association – in 2016 we will refine the initiatives based on feedback and results. For example, our Mega Conferences will only run from 8am to ending immediately after the lunchtime presentation. For our Air Force Research Lab Tour, we’ll only be taking a 29 PAX bus to better service the members attending the tours. And we will put emphasis on research and development but try to focus it only towards those interested through a business innovation matchmaking event. And finally, with our first ever Legislative Breakfast on July 15th, we’ll provide our local, state and federal legislators a simple 2020 Plan that they can follow to assist in growing our defense industry locally.

For the upcoming conference, we will focus on strategy as a consortium of defense companies, something the Purdue Team calls Strategic Doing. So often we focus only on our companies and not on the level of partnership needed to grow our businesses – this discussion should explore in your mind things that we can do across our NE Indiana defense industry to grow. In addition, we are bringing in Bloomberg Defense out of New York City to demonstrate their automated tools in the defense sector that will allow you to focus your efforts where there is existing and/or new good business – I think you’ll appreciate the power these tools can bring!

To tap off a great conference, we now have Former 9th District Congressman, Baron Hill (D) who’s running for a Senate Seat and State Senator, Jim Banks (R) who’s running for the 3rd Congressional District seat with us providing their thoughts on our defense/defense industry. Please sign up early but NLT the 12th of May via the link on the agenda slide. Our conference will still be at IPFW but in the Walb Classic Ballroom!

On behalf of the NIDIA Board, see you there!

Question 3: What Will We Do Together? Implementation involves defining a Pathfinder Project and drafting a short-term action plan. Everyone walks away with an action item.

Question 4: What’s Our 30/30. Strategy is always in flux, and we need a process for evaluating our progress and distilling what we learn. We call this step the 30/30.
