NDIA Allied Membership
(Changes coming for 2025)

Allies. Partners. Teammates.

Our non-U.S. partners play a key role in national defense and we value their contributions to NDIA.


Allied Industry

Industry Allied members are corporations chartered and controlled under the laws of an Allied nation and provide goods and services to the U.S Department of Defense (DoD).

Organizations and businesses that wish to receive NDIA corporate benefits will follow NDIA Industry pricing criteria.

Allied Government

Allied Government membership is open to current Allied Nation government employees and members of Allied Nation militaries (Active Duty only). Like our U.S. Government members, Allied Government membership is complementary.

Allied Individual

Allied Individual Membership is comparable to NDIA’s Basic Individual Membership and offers access to event discounts, our newsletters, and joining local Chapters and Divisions (excluding Division Committees and Boards) to citizens of nations with an alliance or reciprocal procurement agreement with the U.S.
