I am honored to have served as NDTA Chairman for the past ten months.  During this time, I have had the pleasure of watching NDTA and its members continue to raise the bar in support of USTRANSCOM and our great country.  I have seen first hand the significant effort and investment of time by so many as we work for the benefit of national security.

NDTA and its members have continued to provide a trusted environment for government, military and private sector experts to build working relationships and develop the next generation of professionals.

While facing an unpredictable world, we have a shared goal with USTRANSCOM of remaining focused on readiness and resiliency. I have seen our commercial and industry partners come together and show determination and a shared sense of purpose in this mission.

NDTA and USTRANSCOM have also set the standard for co-sponsored events.  We have worked hard to ensure education and information sharing are at the forefront of our mission and this year’s NDTA-USTRANSCOM Fall Meeting will be no different.

I’m pleased to report that, thanks to the hard work and dedication of the NDTA and USTRANSCOM teams, as well as our committee and working group partners, we are building an exceptional program. This year’s meeting will be held 22-25 October at the Gaylord National Harbor, Washington D.C.

We have 70 Transportation Academy Courses planned, and senior leaders from industry and DOD are among the instructor pool primed to share their considerable knowledge to an anticipated audience of over 1,300.  The program continues to grow, and we want to see all our industry and DOD partners at the meeting.  To hear more, visit our web site here.
