The mission of NDTA is "To foster a strong and efficient global transportation and distribution system to support the economy and national security of the United States by:
* Advancing the knowledge and science of transportation/distribution within government and industry.
* Facilitating the sharing of knowledge between government and transportation/distribution related industries.
* Educating members on the important issues affecting the global transportation/distribution system."
One of the primary methods for achieving our mission is through the annual Forum and Exposition. We advance the knowledge and science of transportation and distribution through our outstanding speaker program--senior leaders from industry, government, and the military. We facilitate the sharing of knowledge through our networking opportunities, the industry expositions, and ad hoc meetings and information exchanges. Attendees learn about the important issues affecting the global transportation and distribution system through breakout sessions. It is through these sessions that there are opportunities for dialogue and the exchange of information between the panels and the attendees. Learning and sharing knowledge and professional development is the cornerstone of NDTA. Join us in Phoenix to hear the Chairman and CEO of UPS, Mr. Scott Davis; the Commander of Air Mobility Command, General Raymond Johns, USAF; the Commander USTRANSCOM, General Duncan McNabb, USAF; the Deputy Secretary of Defense (L&MR), Mr. Alan Estevez; and others including Mr. Eric Haseltine, Mr. Pat Morello, VADM Gordon Holder, USN (Ret), MG Kevin Leonard, USA, RADM Mark Buzby, USN, BG Lynn Colyar, USA, and Mr. Ted Rybeck. Visit the website for a complete list of the breakout sessions and other activities.
To all of our members, individual and corporate, thank you for the work you do every day in support of our economy and our Nations security. Sec you in Phoenix!
