If you're involved in defense logistics or procurement, the Defense Logistics 2014 conference may be a don't-miss event. The event will be held Dec. 2-4 in Alexandria, Va.

This year's theme is "The New Normal: Balancing Readiness, Affordability, and Efficiency." Sessions will address such topics as the impact of budget cuts and constraints on defense logistics, procurement practices and strategies, and performance-based logistics.

The event is known for attracting speakers from the highest ranks of logistics and procurement decision- and policymakers across all branches of the military. The 2014 roster includes Defense Logistics Agency Director Vice Admiral Mark Harnitchek; Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics Frank Kendall; and Assistant Secretary of Defense (Acquisition) Katrina McFarland, among others.

DC Velocity editor-at-large and defense expert Steve Geary will be the conference chair and moderating three of the conference panels.
