DEF2020 Distributed: 23 October 2020
The anticipated DEF2020 conference is officially moving forward as a virtual one-day event on October 23rd.
This decision to move our annual event to a virtual platform was not made lightly. After careful deliberation and discussion, we decided that due to the circumstances we are facing with COVID-19, we want to make our event safe and reliable for as many people as possible. Our community spans wide and far, and we want to make our annual event fun, informative, and stress-free; we believe converting to a virtual conference would help ensure those elements while providing unique opportunities as well as access for the DEF Community.
As we continue to plan our online event with everyone in mind, please continue to check-in and reach out to us with any questions and comments. This is new for us, and we want to stay connected to everyone who looked forward to attending our event. As we continue to organize the event, we will be making additional announcements.
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.
