Executive Briefings are driven by our Thought Leadership Committee and feature discussions with high-level government officials around the three special topic/Initiative areas of the Council’s program: the Homeland Security Enterprise, Cybersecurity, and Border Management and Immigration Reform.
Executive Roundtables, moderated by Council leaders, are our premier lunch-hour programs that give our senior-level members the opportunity to engage with the top public sector officials in the homeland security community. These sessions allow for high-level strategic discussions and have become the foundation for ongoing thought leadership activities and continued follow-up interaction with the speaker and his/her colleagues.
Executive Tours give senior leaders in the Council the opportunity to witness firsthand the unique operational challenges of homeland security both in the Washington region and at DHS and other government facilities across the country. Through a combination of high-level briefings, facility tours, technology demonstrations, and robust roundtable discussions with critical homeland security officials from federal, state, and local agencies, these trips facilitate a collaborative approach and an important understanding for industry of the perspectives and needs of the on-ground officials.
The Council’s Public Policy Programs focus on developing and nurturing a strong ongoing dialogue between industry leaders and key Members of Congress, their senior committee staff, and legislative officials from the relevant federal agencies on the vital policy issues impacting the homeland security mission. Council members participate in discussions that allow for a better understanding of government’s priority issues of concern, as well as facilitate the sharing of industry’s varied points of view on those matters.
The Council’s National Conversation Series involve prestigious government and industry leaders, and examine critical homeland security issues from the standpoint of “looking forward.” These conversations, coupled with written reports, seek to further the strategic vision and direction for the nation’s homeland security efforts, as well as emphasize the need for greater substantive engagement and communication between government and industry.
The Council’s Annual Dinner is our premier year-end event that gives our senior executives members an opportunity to gather in thanks and support of homeland security leaders from the public and private sectors for their continued dedication and service to our nation. At the event, the Council presents a leading public official with our Lifetime Distinguished Service Award.
