DEF2020: Community and Collaboration

23-25 Oct | Indianapolis, Indiana

The theme for this year's conference is Community and Collaboration, and we’re looking for speakers to share their stories, tips, experiences, and personal and professional triumphs and victories, with the DEF community. We want to inspire DEF members, connect and encourage individuals across the US, and propel a culture of innovation throughout national security. If you or someone you know would be a good speaker or workshop host, please "nominate a speaker” below and let us know.

To receive updates about the conference or volunteer to be part of the team to execute what is arguably one of the best weekends of the year, please provide your email below and we will reach out. We can’t wait to see you in Indy!

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.


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.
