ADC has extended the deadline to Oct. 5 for submitting nominations to participate in the 2019 Innovators program. We will be highlighting up to six innovative projects at the 2019 Installation Innovation Forum that demonstrate state-of-the-art approaches defense communities are using to support installations and military families, sustain military missions and promote defense-based economic development.
You must be an ADC member to nominate a project, which can be led by a community, nonprofit or private sector entity. Projects should:
- be new and different; we will consider older efforts, but they must not be widely known.
- demonstrate potential to positively impact military value; and
- be concrete and replicable, something ADC members, or at least a segment of defense communities, can implement.
In addition to looking for projects that are under way — or close to being implemented — ADC is seeking ideas for innovations that are still on the drawing board and may not be ready for implementation until sometime in the future. More details, along with the nomination form, can be found on the IIF2019 website. The 2019 Installation Innovation Forum will be held March 4-6 in Miami.
