Media Advisory: DIA Innovation Symposium June 24-25

By DIA Public Affairs

Media representatives are invited to cover the DIA Innovation Symposium June 24-25 at DIA Headquarters, Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling (JBAB). Please email 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.

Again, please contact us directly ( 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.
