Corporate Member Days
CMD is a program exclusively for Corporate Members and is perhaps the most valuable benefit of Corporate Membership. It is an opportunity for Submarine Force leadership to share their vision and direction with industry, usually after the federal budget has been issued. Major financial and programmatic issues are discussed. The keynote is usually a business and technical update from Naval Reactors and a member of Congress is invited to speak at a breakfast meeting.
Discussions focus on major acquisition and technical issues in the Submarine Force. This event is a prime networking opportunity, enabling contractors, subcontractors and government personnel to discuss the challenges of delivering the capabilities needed by the Submarine Force.
