NIDIA Members,

Thanks to the painstaking detail and endless hour from Carolyn Hatch and our friends from the Purdue Center for Regional Development, we now have our “Why NE Indiana for Defense” Version 1.0 published on our NIDIA site for download.  Just below the company photos on our home page is a link to this publication.  Please download and send out across everyone that impacts you or you impact in the defense world.  Tell them loud and clear, NE Indiana is the place to grow defense!  We will update this document each December so if you have ideas and or changes, please send them to: .

P.S.  We will distribute hard copy versions of this document at our October Mega Conference.
