2016 Model Chapter

NDIA of Georgia

 

PROGRAM:  The State of Defense

Over the last 7 1/2 years defense issues in the United States have been front and center in our national thinking, but not in the minds and actions of our national leadership.  From the pull- out in Iraq to the downsize of our troops in Afghanistan, the gradual decline in the size in our military to the smallest since WWII, and the decline in defense spending, the entire defense establishment from the military to the supporting industry have suffered.  Where are we and where are we heading?

BIOGRAPHY - Former Senator Saxby Chambliss

Saxby Chambliss served in the US Senate for two terms and, before that, served four terms in the US House of Representatives. Georgia Trend Magazine, which consistently named him one of its Most Influential Georgians, called him "a highly visible and well-respected presence in Washington", and says he earned "a reputation as an affable but straight-talking lawmaker".

During his tenure in the Senate, he served as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and his leadership and experience on homeland security and intelligence matters earned him an appointment to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, where he served as vice-chairman from 2011 to 2014, advocating for dramatically improved information sharing and human-intelligence gathering capabilities.  His previous role as chairman of the House Intelligence Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security made him one of the leading congressional experts on those issues.

Saxby was first elected to congress to represent Georgia's 8th District in 1994.  Throughout his legislative career, he has been recognized numerous times by the public and private sectors for his work on defense, budget and national security issues.
