Registration for 2020 Coming Soon

The National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA) and Christopher Newport University’s Center for American Studies jointly present the NDTA-CNU Ports Conference: Enabling Dynamic Force Through Global Port Readiness, at Christopher Newport University, May 12-14, 2020.

The conference brings together U.S. government and industry subject matter experts in logistics and transportation to examine the challenges associated with the dynamic force employment of forces and equipment in support of U.S. national security objectives.

“The National Defense Strategy directs the Joint Force to ‘introduce unpredictability to adversary decision-makers through Dynamic Force Employment.’ Dynamic Force Employment allows us to develop a wide range of proactive, scalable options and quickly deploy forces for emerging requirements while maintaining readiness to respond to contingencies.” — General Joseph F. Dunford Jr., USMC, 19th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

Once again, we will team with SDDC, MARAD and AAPA. Come and participate in the discussion as we work together to identify and solve tough challenges, find creative and innovative ways to enable greater warfighter readiness, and improve our deployment options to respond and operate in a global, multi-domain, contested environment.
