We are excited to announce that Grand Forks will host the first of its kind North Dakota Regional Defense Forum at the Alerus Center October 10th and 11th! Supporting North Dakota’s defense presence unites leaders from our military installations, communities, and industry in an ongoing journey that is evolving with the ever changing needs of today’s military. As the needs of the defense industry change, new ideas and approaches are needed to support our military. North Dakota is no stranger to these changes. Leaders from the Department of Defense, and around the state will convene on Grand Forks for a two day forum to share and discuss ways and ideas that North Dakota communities are executing in partnership with our military neighbors to support and enhance the missions here in North Dakota. For more details, go to the Association of Defense Communities by following the link. We hope to see you there!
