The International Stability Operations Association is pleased to share the draft agenda for the 2012 ISOA Annual Summit taking place at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on 15-17 October 2012.
The Summit’s primary focus is on lessons learned, global budgetary and political environments, and what’s next for the stability operations industry.
Breakout sessions follow two separate tracks, tailored to the needs of different attendees.
The Policy & Strategy track focuses on regulatory and policy issues and is aimed at Government attendees and industry leadership, such as CEOs, COOs, General Counsels, Government Affairs professionals, and Compliance Officers.
The New Realities & Demand track focuses on business development topics spanning budgets, funding, cost and procurement, and is aimed at business development professionals and contract officers will find actionable information for the future of contracting in austere environments.
The Summit also includes high level keynote speakers, insightful general sessions, networking opportunities, a summit dinner and an exhibition.
“ISOA’s past Summits have been extraordinarily successful and we have gained enormously positive feedback from our Members and visitors,” says ISOA President Doug Brooks. “The two track model this year should improve the value of the event to all attendees, but we will still have a rich and varied agenda which seeks to improve industry value in our focus areas, from international peacekeeping to disaster relief.”
