NDIA New England Chapter
Welcome to the New England Chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association.
Our chapter is made up of more than 2900 individual members from large corporations, small companies, research facilities and service providers – as well as education and government - in the six-state New England region.
New England’s rich array of academic, research, technology and entrepreneurial resources are particularly important to the nation’s Defense and Homeland Security efforts. NDIA New England serves as an interface for these sectors, along with the broader defense-focused corporations which also have a major presence in the region, in their work with federal government departments and agencies.
We host an ongoing series of meetings and events to exchange timely and useful information on all aspects of doing business in the defense and homeland security marketplace. We schedule briefings with members of the region’s Congressional delegation. We promote new business and professional development as well as networking opportunities.
NDIA New England is the regional arm of the National Defense Industrial Association (www.ndia.org), the nation’s leading defense industry association in providing a forum for the exchange of information between industry and government on national security issues.
