Welcome to Our Chapter

Welcome to Central Georgia Chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA). Our Chapter is based in Warner Robins, Georgia. Our primary focus is to develop a healthy and secure national security technology and innovation base that consists of government, academia, and traditional and non-traditional defense partners. PJ Vasquez, our chapter President, told you our message is simple: “Connect, share, learn and innovate.” 


1. The CMMC 2.0 Roadmap Workshop will be held at the Mercer Engineering Research Center on June 27th from 8:30am-4:00pm. To view more information on this workshop head over to In the News.

2. The 2023 NDIA Vital Signs Report has been released. The defense industrial readiness policy goal is straightforward: to ensure our warfighters have the platforms, services, and technologies they need so they never engage in a fair
fight against any competitor. This goal is personal for many working in industry. To view more of the Vital Signs Report click here.

Message from the President

3eP7RbeKTvif0xlXuh4b_CentralGA_President.jpg-T.jpgThe NDIA Central Georgia Chapter is proud to be an active and important contributor to the success of Central Georgia and the Georgia defense community providing a trusted team and partner in support of the DoD mission. Our Chapter is unique in its composition, where we can connect statewide with various military, industry, and academic organizations. Key to our unique position is that we can unite, share, learn, and innovate. We are pleased to be an active participant with Air Force and DoD senior leadership to enhance the nation’s defense capabilities. In November 2020, we launched the NDIA Central Georgia Chapter. Together with the NDIA Georgia Chapter, we can increase collaboration and keep communications flowing throughout the state of Georgia. We are planning to achieve this by establishing of new virtual speaker sessions with key senior industry, government, and academic personnel. As a young chapter, we have taken the first step toward collaboration with the local Dixie Crow Chapter, Association of Old Crows (AOC).  Together we started planning the March 2022 joint NDIA Central Georgia and Dixie Crow Symposium. We are the financial supporter along with our Georgia Chapter to sponsor the Museum of Aviation’s Space Week for 2021. We are eager to engage directly once again in person in 2021 as favorable progress continues related to Covid 19. We are excited to support the planned 2021 calendar events and activities and continue to look for new ways for our Chapter to enhance local and overall NDIA National-level goals and events.
