Industry Day 2021 Virtual

We held our 2021 AUSA/MCoE Industry Day in a virtual format again this year. Big thanks to Federal Business Council, Inc., for working with the MCoE MCDID CDD Staff to pull together the virtual experience. The slides from this event can be found by using the link at the top of this page.

We look forward to seeing all of you in person for the 2022 AUSA/MCoE Industry Day, held at the Columbus Trade and Convention Center, April 5-7, 2022.



During the 2021 AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition, 11-13 October 2021, our Chapter still plans to host the Benning Night Reception in the Washington, DC Convention Center. We are planning to hold the reception on Tuesday, October 12, 2021 from 6 – 9 PM in Room 202 of the Convention Center (we are asking for both A and B sides to expand the available area). We fully anticipate that we will be able to execute Benning Night safely, within established parameters. We look forward to your support and participation again this year.
