WID Liberty Chapter Kick-off Reception &
NDIA Delaware Valley Greater Philadelphia Nuclear Submarine & Aircraft Carrier Suppliers Conference

December 5 - 6, 2022

The Women In Defense Liberty Chapter
is hosting a Conference Kick-Off Reception on Monday, December 5 from 5:30pm - 7:30pm at the Chart House (555 S. Christopher Columbus Blvd., Philadelphia PA 19147). Parking is available on-site. 

NDIA Delaware Valley Chapter will be holding its third annual Naval Suppliers Conference. This conference is for the Greater Philadelphia regional defense manufacturers that supply components to the Virginia Class, Columbia Class and Ford Class shipbuilding programs and shipbuilders, as well as related International Naval programs. In addition, Defense MOU Attachés Group (DMAG) leadership will be participating to promote effective defense equipment co-operations and defense trade.

The Conference will be held on December 6, 2022 from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., with a reception to follow, at the Independence Seaport Museum, 211 S. Columbus Blvd., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19106. Registration begins at 7:00 am. Continental breakfast, lunch and networking reception are included in the registration fee.


The goal is to translate the congressional mandate of the DAA (Defense Authorization Act) by senior naval leadership into actionable response by industry partners.  It is the intention of this event to gain a better understanding from the Navy and Shipbuilders regarding the current construction plans, status and priorities and how to expand its industry capacity.
Panels and overviews will be provided by Navy Executive Program Directors & Officers, Shipbuilding Managers of Materials and Procurement of General Dynamics Electric Boat and HII Newport News, and key affiliations to increase engagement between Industry and Government to address the primary concerns to support the fleet requirements. The 25 Defense MOU Attachés Group (DMAG) member countries are all major allies and partners of the US, who participate with US forces in international operations will provide information.
