Aerospace & Defense Community


The purpose of the Aerospace and Defense Community is to provide its members with insights to new trends and emerging practices in the fields of contract, commercial and relationship management. While these will be in the context of the aerospace and defense sector, they will draw from knowledge and ideas that are current and relevant in other sectors and those related to the industry (e.g. government). A key goal is to improve the performance of contracts and relationships.


The objectives will be met by sharing ideas, discussing challenges, exploring new directions and, where appropriate, initiating research or inviting experts to present on key topics related to contract, commercial and relationship management.

Meetings will be virtual (by phone or webinar) unless in specific cases there is an agreed wish to have physical meetings or workshops to develop specific initiatives.
