OHIO DEFENSE FORUM
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Building Resilient Defense Communities
Defense communities are facing an increasingly urgent set of concerns — budget cuts, a looming round of base closures, evolving missions, and force realignments and reductions — all of which will have a major impact on installations, communities, states and regions. Given the scale of these challenges, it is imperative for local and state government officials, community leaders, and other key stakeholders to understand the current defense environment and the role leaders can play in supporting their defense infrastructure.
The Ohio Defense Forum will bring together community and industry leaders from across the State for two days in October to gather intelligence on the latest Defense Department and Congressional actions and share best practices for keeping Ohio defense communities and installations strong.
