For Immediate Release: May 1, 2017
WASHINGTON – The Homeland Security & Defense Business Council (Council) announced that four new companies joined its membership organization in the first quarter of 2017. The Council’s newest members, Blue Canopy Group, LLC; CACI International Inc; E3 Federal Solutions, LLC; and SureID, Inc.; all provide product, technology or service solutions to the government.
“I am thrilled to add these four leading government contractors to our membership roster,” said Marc Pearl, President & CEO. “In addition to the Council’s robust first quarter, we are excited that our newest members have the opportunity to take advantage of all of the programs we have scheduled for the coming months. We look forward to adding the thought leadership perspectives of Blue Canopy, CACI, E3 Federal Solutions, and SureID into our initiatives.”
The Council focuses on facilitating the vital exchange of ideas and perspectives between industry and government in the Homeland Security Enterprise. Since January, members of the Council have participated in numerous forums including roundtable discussions with leaders from U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Management Directorate, FBI, and Federal Emergency Management Agency; and presented at the DHS Reverse Industry Day III. The second-quarter programs will feature events with leadership from the U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Congress; and two out-of-town Executive Tours at Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, FBI, Transportation Security Administration, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection facilities.
Large, mid-tier, and small member companies lend their senior executives and subject matter experts to participate in the Council’s range of programs and Thought Leadership Committee (TLC). The Council’s TLC brings together the best and brightest thought leaders from its membership to engage with administration officials, congressional leaders, and other stakeholders in a manner that allows them to share ideas and lessons learned, and to offer insightful points of view on the most pressing issues our country faces in accomplishing the homeland security mission.
