Looking Forward to 2020

PNDC will respond to member needs and the changing defense & security marketplace by continuing our focus on Intelligence, Access & Support to bring more defense contracts to the region and support a robust and connected supply chain. Look for networking programs to maintain a connected community of trusted peers, business development programs to access direct government and supply chain buyers, and training focused on a compliant regional defense and security industry. 

A few highlights: 

NASA is coming to the region for the Northwest Aerospace Defense Conference in June 2020. The Aerospace Defense Conference focuses on market intelligence, trends, and connections in traditional aerospace, unmanned, and space. In 2020, NASA will present at the program and provide one-on-one meetings, with NASA procurement and prime contractors, for those looking to supply the space industry.     

With the regions strategic position, programs will continue to focus on supporting those in the Maritime Supply Chain with market intelligence, updates on trends, and opportunities to grow your business with local, national and international Maritime opportunities. Look for the Maritime Defense Conference in Fall 2020.

Our 2020 programs will include support for our members to understand and comply with the Department of Defense (DoD) New Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). The final version of the CMMC is due to release in early 2020 and will require audited security compliance levels for all Department of Defense prime and subcontractors.
