The Department of the Air Force and Army Digital Materiel Management Industry Association Consortium is hosting a kick-off event, Nov. 2-3 at the Ritz Carlton in Crystal City, Virginia.

The purpose of the forum is to bring together experts from the Department of the Air Force, Army, defense industry and academia to collaborate on Digital Materiel Management and Digital Transformation solutions and enable a cooperative framework across engineering, program management, contracting, logistics, financial management, and test and evaluation fields.

Keynote speakers include Senior Executive Staff, general officers, and program executive officers from the DAF and Army along with senior executives and technology officers from defense industry. Discussions will focus on digital data standards, policy, integration across acquisition functions, infrastructure and environment, and workforce development and training.
