Why do you sponsor NDIA?

Darley sponsors the NDIA Great Lakes Chapter for a variety of reasons. We believe it helps our Midwest industrial base, which is critical to our national security. We are proud to serve our country’s warfighters for over 100 years. - Paul Darley, President & CEO 

The NDIA Advantage

NDIA drives strategic dialogue in national security by identifying key issues and leveraging the knowledge and experience of its military, government, industry, and academic members to address them. For over 100 years, NDIA has provided a platform through which leaders in government, industry, and academia can collaborate and provide solutions to advance the national security and defense needs of the nation. NDIA Membership means knowledge, access, influence, and contacts, regardless of your role in the defense community. Join us and take advantage of everything the NDIA Great Lakes Chapter has to offer.
