The relationship between the military and the communities and states that host installations, missions and military families is more important – and stronger – than ever. There is an increasing recognition that military readiness requires the broad support of communities and states. This is the mission and commitment that will redefine the future of America’s defense communities and the ability of military forces to fight and meet the demands of their missions.
Developing an in-depth understanding of the current and future issues that define readiness is critical to ensuring defense communities and states are prepared for impending challenges. ADC’s 2020 Defense Communities National Summit is the leading policy-focused event that provides communities, states and partners with the most comprehensive look at the issues that will define our military’s readiness.
