The annual Defense Forum Breakfast hosted by the Combined Professionals Associations Group is Friday, Jan. 13 at the Holiday Inn University and will feature Team Orlando leaders Chérie Smith, Deputy PEO STRI; Captain Erik “Rock” Etz, NAWCTSD commander; Colonel Brad “Critter” Crites, AFAMS commander; and Colonel Walt Yates, PM TRASYS.
Each year at the breakfast, these leaders share their thoughts on the previous year’s accomplishments as well as their expectations for the coming year. This helps industry representatives gauge what’s upcoming and prepare for the new year.
The program begins at 7:30 am, while the doors open at 7 am for registration and networking. Individuals can register and pay $22 here no later than Wednesday, July 11. Tables are also available if purchases in advanced ($200), and registration on the event morning is $25 per person should space permit.
Proceeds from this year’s breakfast will benefit the Orlando Fisher House, which will be building a new facility on the grounds of the VA Medical Center at Lake Nona.
