Defense Industry Associations

Posted by douglasburdett

Defense contractors who are active members of industry associations are able to raise their profile, form strategic alliances and generate more business opportunities.

Defense Industry Associations-CR

Whenever I speak about defense contractor marketing, I’m often asked about defense industry associations. There are very few online resources that have collected this type of information in one place, so I've compiled this list that I hope you find helpful.

The focus of the list is associations whose membership includes defense contractors. Very likely, not every organization is listed here that should be, so if you know of any other associations that should be added, please contact me or post a comment below and I will update the list.
