SACRAMENTO, CA  |  MAY 24 – 25

California serves.

Our state provides unique, mission-critical capabilities for the armed forces that must be preserved and strengthened if America is to maintain its position of leadership in a rapidly changing world.

Home to the world’s most valuable network of air, sea and land ranges, California’s national security installations have prepared generations of American service members for conflicts around the world and provide a critical staging ground for current actions.

The state’s defense infrastructure also provides the essential ingredients necessary to transform and strengthen national defense power for the new century. California offers the best combination of technology, industry and academia in support of military needs both today and in the future. In addition to the Naval Postgraduate School, seven of the top 25 research universities are in California, and they all provide critical contributions to national security. America’s best-trained and most experienced aerospace and technology workforce lives and works here and we as a state recognize that the past few years have highlighted critical issues here that are common across the bases, communities and workforce that require prompt attention to reinforce these valuable defense networks.

The 2023 California Defense Leadership Summit is presented by ADC and the California Governor’s Military Council.







Sponsoring the 2023 California Defense Leadership Summit is an excellent way to promote your brand with key leaders at the community, state and national levels. Sponsorships include complimentary registrations, the opportunity to be involved in one of our sessions and more.
