Overview

Wednesday, Oct. 22

Coordinated by NGA’s Facility Program Office (SIF), day one will focus on NGA facilities, how they are enabling NGA’s Mission, and an Introduction to the West Facilities Modernization (WFM) Program. The WFM Program is an NGA initiative to replace NGA’s existing facilities at the 2nd Street site in St. Louis, MO. There will be an NGA Campus East (NCE) lessons learned discussion outlining successes, challenges, and application to the WFM Program.

Join USGIF’s Young Professionals Group (YPG) for a networking event at Kemoll’s at 5:30 p.m. to learn about the local startup scene. Representatives from USGIF member BoundlessGeo will share their experiences as part of a venture-backed Intelligence Community startup.
