The 2022 ASMC Virtual National Capital Region (NCR) Professional Development Institute (PDI) being held on Thursday March 10, 2022. Despite hopes and efforts to hold a hybrid 2022, ongoing COVID uncertainties and significant technological limitations at our contracted venue made a hybrid or in-person event logistically and financially infeasible. This is distressing, as we know it is particularly impactful to our corporate sponsors who value face to face government interaction. With resignation, we will hold the 2022 NCR PDI program using an enhanced format we hope will optimize the “virtual” environment.

NCR PDI is a vibrant engagement across key ASMC Washington metropolitan area chapters to optimize Defense education and professional development, dialogue, networking, as well as fund-raising for charities and scholarships. In the years leading up to COVID, our event sold out with over 1,600 government and industry professionals. PLEASE join us for this commanding virtual experience and a terrific day of learning, discourse, and certification [up to 6 CPEs]. In gratitude of all our corporate members, and for only 2022, all corporate ASMC members can register free of charge along with our government ASMC members! We strongly encourage non-members to join ASMC to enjoy year-around benefits of reasonable membership to include this free training! Please have your ASMC Membership number available during registration.
