ISOA Annual Summit registration begins August 9th

We're into the dog days of summer. In baseball parlance, that is a term for the lazy, hot days of the long season. But we know that no one is just sitting around in our industry. Government agencies are busy gearing up for their end-of-fiscal-year spending, which means all of us are too!

We are excited to announce that on August 9th, we will be opening registration for the 2017 ISOA Annual Summit in October. Next Wednesday, August 9th, please go to our new Summit website to sign up you and your company for this wonderful event.

This Summit will feature key speakers from Congress, Department of Defense, the State Department, other USG agencies, and many other leaders from our industry. Our special guest dinner speaker on Wednesday will be Joe Theismann, the famed NFL quarterback from the Washington Redskins and well-known speaker around the country.

Our panel discussions will include experts covering the following topics (and more):

- Afghanistan: What will be the US policy moving forward?
- Homeland Security
- Human and Labor Trafficking
- Women in Stabilization Leadership Roles
- Operational Stress: How our body and mind are impacted when working in conflict states.

Our early Summit sponsors are:

- MSA Security
- KBRwyle
- GardaWorld
- Remote Medical International
