Please join the NDIA New England Chapter for an advanced workshop intended for CEOs, CFOs, COOs and other stakeholders in the Govcon Enterprise.

The workshop will provide benefit across the spectrum from firms providing services to the federal sector and prime contractors, research-centric entities that rely on government grants and research contracts, and component manufacturers that develop and make products embedded in integrated platforms. We hope you can join us!
