NAC General Membership Meeting
The NAC General Membership Meeting is an annual forum bringing the DoD Armaments Community together to discuss requirements, challenges, and emerging opportunities in a unique collaborative environment using an OTA.

McCormick Stevenson is proud to be one of almost 600 organizations that belong to the National Armaments Consortium (NAC). NAC partners with the Department of Defense’s Ordinance Technology Consortium (DOTC) to streamline acquisition, reduce fielding time and innovate technologies while maximizing collaboration for our Nation’s security. This annual membership meeting brings together over 1,000 people from small, medium and large private industry businesses and academia from across the NAC and DOTC armaments community.

NAC Notes From Noel

For over 20 years, Noel McCormick has been serving the armaments community. He shares his thoughts on the upcoming annual NAC Membership Meeting.

In the spring of every year, members of the NAC gather together to seek a better understanding of current and future warfighting challenges, to collaborate, and to meet those challenges head-on. I love the construct—the chance to stand apart from day-to-day business commitments and remind ourselves just who and why we serve. The defense of liberty requires an extraordinary personal and professional commitment on the part of America’s Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines—a commitment that I greatly admire, and that those of us in the industry work hard to honor through our own dedication to exceptional performance.

Several years ago, I was privileged to attend a briefing by Mr. James “Hondo” Geurts, then Acquisition Executive, USSOCOM, now Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development & Acquisition. Mr. Geurts’ advice was simple, “Never measure your importance by your proximity to the fight.” A generous perspective that stuck with me. In a similar way, my membership and participation in the National Armaments Consortium reminds me of that noble cause.
