gtsc-logo-2016Dear Intelligence Community News Readers,

At Intelligence Community News, we are dedicated to bringing you unclassified news each day from across the U.S. Intelligence Community marketplace. As part of that mission, our team is always on the lookout for ways to add value to our publication. That’s why today’s news is so exciting.

Intelligence Community News is delighted to announce our partnership with the Government Technology and Services Coalition (GTSC), the leading industry organization dedicated to driving innovation and helping small and mid-size companies do business with the U.S. Intelligence Community. As a nonprofit association, GTSC supports its members with advocacy, capacity building, partnership opportunities, and marketing in the federal homeland and national security space.

Intelligence Community News readers who become members of GTSC will gain access to exclusive bonuses, including a free ad in GTSC’s newsletter and a free basic event sponsorship. Simply mention the code ICN2016 when you sign up as a GTSC member organization to receive your gifts.

Beginning in October, Intelligence Community News will also work with GTSC to promote private sector innovation through a number of initiatives, including “Smashing the Box” events, which connect U.S. intelligence agencies with businesses that have innovative ideas to advance national security. Through a subscription to Intelligence Community News, you’ll be the first to know.

As Sue Gordon, deputy director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, said at the 2016 Intelligence Community Innovation Conference, “Creativity is about ideas. Innovation is about doing.”

We’re proud to be working with such an action-focused partner.

To your success,

Loren M. Blinde, PhD
