President’s Welcome Letter

Lynn Tomaszewski, President of the Lone Star and Sooner States

Dear Current and Future Members of NDIA of the Lone Star and Sooner States,

Our theme for FY 2022 was one of Regional Expansion which culminated in our NEW! NDIA of the Lone Star and Sooner States (chapter name change), we strive to be inclusive of industry and military installation throughout Texas and Oklahoma that want to be engaged with us.

FY2023 is ALL about building a resilient workforce and defense industrial base that brings economic prosperity and attracts entrepreneurs and industry to this region. As I look to my second term as President, bringing renewed energy and new members to our Board of Directors, we are united to support our troops, build up our defense industrial base reserve and to bring critical manufacturing that supplies the DIB to USA soil.

NDIA Expo is slated for May 2023, in this first of a kind Industrial Style Event, NDIA of the Lone Star and Sooner States has invited public and private enterprise leadership, decision makers and the public to address regional workforce needs and supply chain critical issues. We are calling on ALL Texas and Oklahoma manufacturers to participate, secure a 10×10 booth to showcase manufacturing and workforce capabilities to prime buyers and suppliers in the defense and aerospace community.

Participation guarantees access to transitioning military talent for hire through our Virtual Job Fair platform that opens October 15th, 2022 through the last day of event. NDIA of the Lone Star and Sooner States is proud to support the recruiting initiatives of the US Army and will be showcasing some of the finest and most innovative war-fighting equipment on the trade show floor and outside the expo throughout the event sponsored by the Command at Fort Hood. Network with commanders, soldiers, industry executives, non-profit leaders and the many workers that support the war fighter.
