US Senator Susan Collins, DNI James Clapper to keynote March 3 symposium on intelligence reform
The Intelligence and National Security Alliance will host a symposium Tuesday, March 3, on the impact of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (IRTPA), which ushered in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).
As the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) approaches its 10th anniversary in April 2015, the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA) will host a half-day symposium on Tuesday, March 3, with current and former leaders of government and industry to discuss the impact of this landmark reorganization on the Intelligence Community and its role in strengthening the U.S. national security mission. Registration for the symposium is now open at
The agenda for A Decade of IC Integration and the Challenges Ahead includes opening remarks from U.S. Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), who co-authored the 2004 Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act (IRTPA) that brought the ODNI into existence, and a concluding lunchtime keynote from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Other key participants include the first person to hold the title of DNI, INSA Chairman Ambassador John Negroponte, and his DNI successors Vice Adm. Mike McConnell (USN, ret.) and Adm. Dennis Blair (USN, ret.). Leaders from government, industry and academia also will participate in discussions on intelligence reform-related topics to share their perspectives.
Ambassador Negroponte said, “The efforts undertaken by Senate Collins, Director Clapper and others over the last decade to enhance the integration of information, systems and personnel across the IC have been instrumental to strengthening our national security. As we continue to strive toward a more agile, efficient and effective Intelligence Community, it is timely to reflect after 10 years on the lessons learned and the steps ahead. I am pleased to be a part of this impressive agenda and I look forward to participating in the conversation.”
The symposium will run from 8:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Ritz Carlton – Pentagon City. Registration is open now; to register, visit www.insaonline.org/integration.
