Sometimes partnerships pay off with a trip to see the Padres! As a thank you to partners involved with the NDIA (National Defense Industrial Association) and their annual Navy Gold Coast conference, a partner from Bank of America invited me to attend a Padres game.
The NDIA aims to engage leaders to promote best policies and practices to build a responsive and collaborative community supporting defense and national security. Professionals from private industry, government, military and first responders from public and private sectors attend sponsored programs to secure industry contacts and network. They recently held their 31st Annual Department of the Navy Gold Coast Small Business Procurement Event here in San Diego.
San Diego’s defense industry has an enormous, positive impact on the city’s economy. I am proud to be a member of these supporting groups and events.
