Corporate Membership Benefits

Conference Question

If your company is part of the defense industry, you have a place in NDIA. By joining, your company and its products become more marketable because of the knowledge, visibility, and contacts that NDIA membership offers. You can help shape government policy through the Association's voice, and you are assured that you support an organization committed to defense industrial readiness. As a corporate member, you can take advantage of the following membership benefits:


NDIA's technical and policy symposia connect you to the core of the industry. By attending, you will meet and hear from the movers and shakers in the field, and you will increase contact with peers who share your company's interests. Defense professionals from the public and private sectors rely on these programs for information straight from the experts and for making contacts in industry and government. When you and your colleagues attend NDIA symposia, you are eligible to register at member rates.


Participation in approximately one dozen NDIA exhibitions each year brings contacts to your company. Building presence over time helps establish relationships with current and prospective customers. The corporate member discount will save your company hundreds of dollars. The Exhibits area of the website provides more details.


NDIA Divisions, Committees, and working groups are made up of volunteers representing their organizations and industries, focused on scientific, technical, policy, and management disciplines of national defense. Participation is limited to representatives of corporate members. By choosing to take part, volunteers from your company might plan symposia, prepare studies, or develop policy recommendations. Increase contacts with fellow experts in the field as a member. Sign up to receive targeted information in your areas of interest by filling out the form below.
