Media representatives are invited to cover the DIA
Innovation Symposium June 24-25 at DIA Headquarters, Joint Base
Anacostia-Bolling (JBAB). Please email #firstname.lastname@example.org
no later than, Wednesday, June 18, if you plan to attend.
The theme for DIA’s Innovation Symposium 2014 is “Embracing
Agility in a Rapidly Changing World.” This Innovation Symposium will be an
opportunity for our industry partners to hear presentations from agency senior
leadership on DIA’s current challenges and efforts to maximize our agility for
a rapidly changing global landscape. We hope it will help inform your reporting
on important DIA initiatives.
Building upon last year’s DIA’s Innovation Day, this year’s
two-day event includes sessions on our progress with NeedipeDIA and the Open
Innovation Gateway, and features speakers and panels on “DIA’s IC ITE Adoption
Story,” “Doing Business at the Pace of Innovation,” and “Connecting IT
Innovation with Mission and Business Values.” DIA Director LTG Michael Flynn
will offer remarks to open and close the symposium.
We’ve arranged for permission to use recorders, laptops and
cameras in the symposium area to make coverage more conducive.
to visit the symposium website and view a draft agenda; however, do not
register via the website.
Again, please contact us directly (#email@example.com) no later than
June 18 if you plan to attend so that you can return the required information
by close of business that day. We will provide you with all the information
required to access the base and DIA HQ upon receiving your email.
