Keeping NDIA growing by recruiting, retaining, and engaging members is the purpose of the NDIA Membership & Chapters Department. The goals and mission of each chapter is to provide a way for defense professionals and companies to connect for success on local level.
Extending the reach of NDIA across the nation is the chapter structure which provides a geographic focus for the NDIA vision and mission. Members benefit from local educational programs, events, and networking opportunities. Upon joining the association, a member is assigned to a chapter by zip code according to corporate or home address.
Many chapters are located near major military commands, research centers, and defense agencies. Members can network with fellow industry professionals and engage with government officials in a legal, ethical forum.

Chapter members often give back to their profession and community through scholarship programs and charitable endeavors. Volunteer boards of directors govern chapters. The Model Chapter Program encourages leaders to strive for excellence in their service to members. Chapters enhance recruitment and retention efforts of the greater organization.
For companies and other organizations, NDIA provides a source for networking, knowledge, and business intelligence through events, working divisions, and local chapters. Corporate membership provides access to 36 divisions that address issues through conference development, studies, and more. NDIA promotes a vigorous and ethical forum for information exchange between the government and the defense industry in this way.
The Corporate Members Washing- tonOffices Directory is a product of the Membership Department.
