Held by the National Defense Industry Association (NDIA), SOFIC is a networking forum that brings together military, government, and academic constituents to discuss SOF-related issues. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with other industry stakeholders about challenges facing the Special Operations Forces.
Strengthening the SOF Bond
The theme of this year’s annual conference is Strengthening the SOF Bond. The event will focus on four key areas to address current and future challenges for Special Operations Forces, and ways they can be supported, including:
- Preservation of the force and families
- Human domain
- Theater Special Operations Commands (TSOC) support
Understanding the Needs of the SOF
This year’s SOFIC has a number of events on the agenda to help attendees understand the needs of the SOF, in order to better support the Special Operations Forces and strengthen the SOF bond.
- Commanders and acquisition executives from the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) will share their insights on challenges, trends, priorities, and interests of the current and future SOF and how to best support our Special Operations Forces.
- Attendees will have the opportunity to gain valuable insight from USSOCOM Component and Theater commanders about key acquisition, requirements, operations, and technology issues, through knowledge, understanding, and awareness of the SOF’s current missions.
- Engagement opportunities for attendees include USSOCOM Senior Leader Panels, PEO Concurrent Sessions, and Business Opportunities Sessions.
- The Senior Industry Executive forum is a special event at the SOFIC for CEOs, COOs, and Presidents. This invitation-only discussion with USSOCOM Commanders will teach industry leaders how they can more closely collaborate with the USSOCOM to better support SOF forces worldwide.
