ADC’s 2022 Defense Communities National Summit is the leading policy-focused event that provides communities, states and partners with the most comprehensive look at the issues that will define our military’s readiness.


Behind every mission, base and family there is a community that provides a home to our military. From small towns to cities, regions and entire states – defense communities take different forms, but their role is the same – providing a foundation for our national security and a home for our military families.

Representing every major defense community and state in the country, The Association of Defense Communities (ADC) is a 300+ member organization dedicated to advancing issues that build strong communities and strengthen the ability for service members to defend our nation.
