According to the U.S. Army's 'Designation of Army Conference Leads for Non-Department of Defense Conferences During Fiscal Year 2017,' the NDIA Tactical Wheeled Vehicles Conference for 2017 is not currently considered a major non-DOD conference with an assigned Army Lead. Accordingly, the Army does not intend to consolidate a single Army conference request. Interested attendees should seek approval in accordance with Army Directive 2016-14, Army Conference Policy and the processes of their Major Army Command or Principal Staff Organization. Non-Army entities within DOD should follow the policies of their DOD organization.
The purpose of the NDIA Tactical Wheeled Vehicle Division is to conduct a forum for Government and Military Service wheeled vehicle and related systems Program Executives/Managers, leaders and technical experts to present, discuss, and answer questions related to vehicle acquisition program strategies, updates, priorities, technology requirements, and other desired capabilities and characteristics to defense industry representatives in attendance. Government and Military Service representatives will also receive feedback from selected industry representatives in attendance via formal presentations, panel discussions and one--on-one networking opportunities during breaks in the agenda. Government and Military Service member physical presence and participation is required to fulfill the purpose of the NDlA Tactical Wheeled Vehicle Conference that is the subject of this agreement.
