Iowa-Illinois Chapter hosts conference. (Women in Defense).
The event is designed for members and potential members of the Iowa-Illinois Chapters of WID and NDIA, according to Sue Crisp, president of the chapter. Crisp, who is also ombudsman and competition advocate at the U.S. Army Operations Support Command in Rock Island, Ill., explained the purpose of the event:
"We want to provide our members with a conference touching on a wide range of topics of interest to professional women. Speakers will range from large corporations to small business, to military personnel and civilians. They will cover such diverse topics as military family challenges, workplace safety, women's health challenges, and mentoring and professional development."
WID's National Board of Directors is proud of the progress and the momentum of our Iowa-Illinois Chapter. By holding timely and relevant events, the Iowa-Illinois Chapter is leading the way in helping to focus and define the roles, challenges and contributions that women make to our national security.
Knowledge Management Network
WID held its second annual Knowledge Management Network Breakfast, in February, at NDIA Headquarters in Arlington, Va. The breakfast was sponsored by Concurrent Technologies Corporation. The topic was "Defense Budget and Policy Issues for 2003." Speakers included: Nancy Saucier, of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips; Cathy Garman, of the Contract Services Association, and NDIA's Steven A. Thompson, senior vice president, government policy.
"This is the second year that WID has held Knowledge Management Network Breakfasts," said WID Programs Director Jan Menker, of Concurrent Technologies Corporation.
"We think this breakfast series provides an excellent opportunity, in an informal venue, for WID members to learn about current public policy and business issues that impact their careers and provide a springboard for discussion of timely issues."
WID is scheduling more Knowledge Management Network Breakfast meetings throughout 2002.
WID Annual Meeting
WID's annual meeting will be held sometime in April, in accordance with provisions in its by-laws, to install new directors and review the direction of the organization. Check WID's Web site at http://wid.ndia.org for information about dates, program and times.
