NDIA Annual Membership Meeting
at the River Forest Country Club, Elmhurst, IL


Annual Meeting at 4:30 p.m. with networking dinner and program following.

This is your chance to shape future chapter events, hear the results of our first year as a chapter and be the first to hear about our Scholarship program!

We are excited to have General Peter J. Schoomaker (Retired), the 35th Chief of Staff of the United States Army as our guest speaker. General Schoomaker will share views on current conicts and threats and what that may mean for private industry contracting with the DoD and engage in Q&A from the audience. General Schoomaker is a retired four-star general of the United States Army and served as the 35th Chief of Staff of the United States Army from August 1, 2003 to April 10, 2007.

General Schoomaker's appointment as Chief of Staff was unique in that he was recalled and came out from retirement to assume the position. Schoomaker voluntarily retired from the Army for the second time in 2007 after completing the full four-year term as Chief of Staff. During his service, he participated in numerous operations including DESERT ONE in Iran, URGENT FURY in Grenada, various operations in Lebanon and El Salvador, JUST CAUSE in Panama, DESERT SHIELD/DESERT STORM in Southwest Asia, and UPHOLD DEMOCRACY in Haiti. He supported many other worldwide joint contingency operations, including those in the Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq and the Global War on Terror on every continent.

THIS IS AN EVENT YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS!
