Keynote Speaker will be Lt. Col. Ron Mumm, the 1996 Commander of the United States Air Force Thunderbirds.

Afternoon breakout sessions will be held for a more in depth discussion of groups’ different areas of focus.

Throughout the Roundtable, regional group stakeholders will be offering discussions on tax structures, legislative strategies, industry internships, scholarships and other topics to be identified by regional group leaders.
