DEF2019 In Review

It's in the books. Nearly 300 good rebels and virtuous insurgents from around the world descended on Washington D.C. to engage and empower others. From the Pitch Event to the final panel and everything between, the community shared some incredible stories and progress that is changing the nature of national security and how our tribe has been intimately involved.


DEF2020 Agenda


23 Oct


The agenda for Friday is still in the process of being built. It will be awesome but we don't know what that looks like yet!


24 Oct


Plan for a full day of incredible speakers, panels, and workshops built and chosen to solve specific problems.


25 Oct


We look forward to ending on a day of powerful conversations and productive networking.

We are excited to have Heath Murray as the lead planner for DEF2020. He is active in the DEF Bloomington chapter, serves on the DEF Giving Team and is stepping up to plan the next conference.
