 Past Events - LCID 2019 was another success with over 500 attendees from government and industry (both large and small) from across the country.  The goals for last year's Life Cycle Industry Days were to continue existing and forge new relationships between government and industry senior leaders and their multifunctional teams; provide a forum to discuss near and long-term requirements; and provide an opportunity for large and small business to discuss possible partnerships. The Industry/Government panels, networking sessions and 1-on-1 meetings provided and excellent venue to achieve these goals.  NDIA played a role in achieving these goals by participating in Industry/Government pre-planning sessions and providing an Industry based prioritized topic list.  We are looking forward to playing a role in this year's LCID successes.
