Board of Directors – SENEDIA has a Board of Directors that governs the actions of the alliance.  The Board of Directors is responsible for overall policy and direction of SENEDIA. The board shall consist of not more than 21 members; membership on the board is contingent upon being up-to-date on membership dues.

Current Board Members

The Executive Board governs all actions of SENEDIA with the advice and consent of the Board of Directors.  The Executive Board acts with the authority of the Board of Directors if it is in the best interest of SENEDIA at the discretion (and agreement) of the Chair.  The Executive Board shall be comprised of the Board Chairperson, 1st Vice Chair, 2nd Vice Chair – Communications, 2nd Vice Chair – Strategic Planning, Secretary and Treasurer. Terms of the Executive Board will be for three (3) years.

Advisory Group – An Advisory Group has been established to provide SENEDIA with advice and counsel. This group consists of retired flag and general officers and senior government civilians, as well as senior representatives of the defense industry. People on the Advisory Group are solicited individually.

Subcommittees – Subcommittees are established and disestablished as deemed necessary by the Leadership Committee to research and provide SENEDIA with information and recommendations on specific issues.

Several Standing Subcommittee are aligned with the annual strategic plan:

  • Communications
  • Defense Industry Partnership
  • Legislative
  • Membership
  • Small Business Innovation Research
  • Strategic Planning
  • Undersea Warfare, Shipbuilding
  • Workforce Development

Other subcommittees are formed and later disestablished based on specific needs. As an example, in preparation for the 2005 DoD Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process, a BRAC Subcommittee was formed to help formulate recommendations as to how to best approach the BRAC process and advise our congressional and state representatives on how to best formulate a BRAC strategy.
