ADC 360 Live Webcast

ADC is proud to introduce the Defense Communities 360 Live Webcast, a new and interactive way to learn about the most pressing issues affecting defense communities and military installations.

Each day, ADC’s daily newsletter Defense Communities 360 is a source for breaking news and information from the Department of Defense, Capitol Hill and around the country. The Defense Communities 360 Live Webcast will take you inside those stories with an opportunity to hear from leading newsmakers and top experts.

ADC’s first webcast covered the year’s biggest story facing DoD and defense communities:



Surviving the Budget Knife: What Changes in DoD Spending Mean for Defense Communities


With the recent failure of the congressional supercommittee, defense communities are being inundated with speculation about potential cuts that could affect their local installation. Join ADC for a discussion by three experts for a discussion on these urgent questions:

  • What is the current budget situation on Capitol Hill and the Pentagon?
  • What are the immediate impacts of defense cuts for defense communities?
  • Will installations be downsized or closed outside of the BRAC process?
  • What should communities look for in the coming months and how can they prepare today?



The webcast recording is now available!

Cost: $15.00 for ADC members ($30.00 for non-members)
