Environment, Energy Security, & Sustainability Symposium & Exhibition (E²S²)

3-14-13

It is with sincere regret that NDIA must cancel the Environment, Energy Security & Sustainability (E2S2) Symposium & Exhibition in New Orleans originally scheduled for June 10-13, 2013.  

As you are aware, on January 10, 2013 the Department of Defense issued a memorandum detailing actions to be taken to mitigate budget risk in the event Sequestration was actually implemented.  That guidance included curtailment of all but mission-critical travel for government employees, staff and leaders.  With the implementation of Sequester on March 1, 2013 budgetary pressures have increased even more with yet another significant budget event being the expiration of the current Continuing Resolution funding the DoD on March 27, 2013.  The effects of these government actions and decisions have rendered the conduct of the planned E2S2 no longer possible.  With government environment, energy security and sustainability leaders and officials unable to travel to conferences, the purpose of E2S2 can no longer be fulfilled.
 
All registered Attendees and Exhibitors will receive a full refund of fees paid.  Registrants are reminded that they are responsible for cancelling their own hotel reservations, and other travel–related arrangements.

E2S2 has proven to be an important venue for industry to receive critical information relating to government policies, procedures, priorities and plans for environment, energy security and sustainability programs and issues.  At present we are exploring alternative activities and means for delivering critical content and discussions on these programs and issues to our members and loyal customers in defense industry.  As plans develop, we will advise you accordingly.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at: 703-247-2587 or bbommelje@ndia.org.

ON THE ENVIRONMENT

ON ENERGY

ON SUSTAINABILITY

"Climate change is far more than simply an environmental threat. It's a threat to our stability. It's a fundamental threat to global security today as were nuclear weapons during the Cold War."

Ms. Sherri Goodman
General Counsel
CNA Corporation

"Energy security is an operational imperative for the DoD and the numerous military installations across the country. Installations, tactical operations and soldier training all require secure and uninterrupted access to energy."

Mr. Paul Bollinger
Director, Boeing Energy

"NASA is integrating sustainability principles and methods into existing systems, processes and decision-making, influencing both long-term planning and short-term actions. Sustainability is becoming part of NASA culture."

Mr. James Leatherwood, SES
Director
NASA Environmental Management

 REASONS TO ATTEND

What Past Attendees Said:
"As always I came away recharged with one immediate application, 'I didn’t know we were supposed to be doing that' and two, 'just around the corner' compliance issues. It is my most valuable trip every year."

"E2S2 is an essential networking opportunity between defense policy makers, service ESOH practitioners, and industry professionals to ensure collaborative efforts to design, build, and deploy safe weapon systems to the warfighter."

"A great up-to-the-minute account of environmental and energy technology, policy, and research with professionals from around the country!"
