The Southeastern New England Defense Industry Alliance 

Our Mission

The Southeastern New England Defense Industry Alliance was formed to identify, champion and coordinate issues that contribute to our National security and provide benefit to our members, local communities, the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security, and other Federal Government agencies. Our pledge is to provide up-to-date information on Defense and Homeland security industry issues and initiatives.  Our alliance will maintain detailed knowledge of the industrial base that supports our local Federal, Defense and Homeland Security installations and will provide frequent updates to our members, citizens, state and local governments, and congressional delegations.  We maintain an historical perspective on previous Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) actions and their subsequent effects on southeastern New England.  For more information, see our Charter, By Laws and Objectives. We hold periodic meetings and events that may interest you. Details are provided in our calendar. Please return often for new and important information.
