The Michigan Chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) was founded in 1919 as the Army Ordnance Association. Its charter is to provide a legal and ethical forum for the interchange of ideas between the government and industry to resolve industrial problems of joint concern.
Currently the Michigan Chapter has more than 1,700 members representing government, military, and industry. The majority of large businesses that support the Michigan defense community are Corporate Members of NDIA. The Michigan Chapter is involved in a myriad of different activities that support all branches of the armed forces, local, state, and federal government, as well as the corporate entities that support our warfighters, first responders, and patriotic Americans.
