Chapter Guidance

NDIA's 25 chapters, many of which are located near major US military commands, defense agencies, and corporate and academia research centers, are the grassroots of the association.

  • Network at local events to meet-and-greet with others involved in the defense business, and reach out to key decision-makers in government and private industry
  • Tour local military installations and facilities hosted by senior military commanders and top defense company executives
  • Strengthen professional relationships with government and industry representatives through small informal venues
  • Learn first-hand knowledge of policy and trends and how it affects the small to large defense industry on the local and national levels

Chapter Management Manual

The Chapter Management Manual provides the chapter leadership with guidance in managing and strengthening a NDIA chapter within the local community, and assistance to new chapters as they begin the formation process.
