Are you Ready for What’s Next? The Future of our National Defense
Thursday, October 22 // 3:00 – 4:30 PM

There is a growing consensus in Congress and DOD that we are entering a new era of great power competition and in order to be prepared for the threat posed by near-peer competitors the military must re-align its strategic military doctrines, culture, and service programs and budgets. But what exactly will those re-alignments look like? And what are the implications for installations and defense communities?

This discussion will explore these questions as top military leaders and defense experts dive into these complex issues.
