Obtain Access to Recordings

If you missed the Program/Budget Summit, you may still obtain access to the event’s recordings. The cost is $165 for ASMC members and $195 for non-members.

To serve our community and bring together the military and civilian worlds, ASMC designed this new event as a forum to discuss and share defense program and budget priorities.  

The event provided a forum for the Department of Defense and Military Services to highlight their operational program and budget priorities for the years ahead.

Do not miss this opportunity to hear directly from defense services and leave with fresh ideas for collaboration and understanding of how your organization can support initiatives and design win-win opportunities for public and private. Key players in the defense financial management community were in attendance. Catch up on what you missed. Obtain access to the recordings from the Program/Budget Summit.
