Membership & Chapters


Keeping NDIA growing by recruiting, retaining, and engaging members is the purpose of the Membership & Chapters Department. NDIA provides a way for defense professionals and companies to connect for success.

Extending the reach of NDIA across the nation are 52 chapters, which provide a geographic focus for the NDIA vision and mission. Members benefit from local educational programs, events, and networking. Upon joining NDIA, a member is assigned to a chapter by zip code.

Many chapters are located near major military commands, research centers, and defense agencies. Members can network with fellow industry professionals and engage with government officials in a legal, ethical forum. Learn more about NDIA chapters closest to you by reviewing the map and chapter links at www.ndia.org/chapter.

Chapter members often give back to their profession and community through scholarship programs and charitable endeavors. Volunteer boards of directors govern chapters. The Model Chapter Program encourages leaders to strive for excellence in their service to members. Chapters enhance recruitment & retention efforts of the greater organization.

For companies and other organizations, NDIA provides a source for networking, knowledge, and business intelligence through events, working divisions, and local chapters. Corporate membership provides access to 32 divisions that address issues through conference development, studies, and more. NDIA promotes a vigorous and ethical forum for information exchange between the government and the defense industry in this way.

The membership department is responsible for several awards. Each spring, the association presents its most prestigious award, the Eisenhower Award at the Annual Award Dinner. Several other awards recognize achievement through Armed Services schools and graduate schools and are bestowed on outstanding ROTC instructors, cadets, and midshipmen.

The Corporate Members Washington Offices Directory is a product of the membership department.

Details about membership benefits are available at www.ndia.org/join.
