ADC Extending Installation Innovation Forum 2020 Recognition Nominations to Wed., Oct. 23

October 17, 2019

ADC is extending its deadline to Wed., Oct. 23, for the Installation Innovation Forum 2020 Innovators Recognition nominations and wants to hear about your community’s project or initiative supporting an installation or military quality of life issue that represents a new approach or an advance toward local improvement.
At Installation Innovation Forum 2020 scheduled Feb. 10-12 in San Antonio, Texas, ADC will highlight up to six innovative projects that demonstrate state-of-the-art approaches defense communities are using to support installations and military families, sustain military missions and promote defense-based economic development.
Projects selected will be recognized at IIF 2020 through: (1) a concurrent session dedicated to the project; (2) a general session including all project leads; and (3) a special ADC publication.
ADC will be accepting nominations for the Innovators program through Wed., Oct. 23. You must be an ADC member to nominate a project, which can be led by a community, nonprofit or private sector entity.
Submitted projects should:

  • Be new and different; we will consider older efforts, but they must not be widely known.
  • Demonstrate potential to positively impact military value; and
  • Be concrete and replicable, something ADC members, or at least a segment of defense communities, can implement.

More details, along with the nomination form, can be found on the IIF2020 website.
