Announcing the First Annual ICEAA
OEM Forum & Networking Event
Monday, May 15, 2023  |  3:00-5:00pm

ICEAA’s OEM COG was formed to identify, acknowledge, and address the challenges ICEAA members employed by Original Equipment Manufacturers face that differ from those employed by the government or other private sector organizations. The OEM COG is proud to present the first annual OEM Forum & Networking Event, Monday, May 15, 2023 at the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk.

Join us for two hours of panel discussions, presentations, and networking from representatives from BAE Systems, Ball Aerospace, The Boeing Company, HII, L3 Harris, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon Technologies, and more. The open forum will allow for questions of our panelists and time for individual discussions before the group hits the Riverwalk for some social networking.

Attendees of the 2023 ICEAA Professional Development & Training Workshop are welcome to attend, whether employed by an OEM or elsewhere in the community. Sign up for the OEM Forum & Networking Event when registering for the Workshop to claim your seat!
