POC - 2023 9th Annual Intel Summit

2023 9th Annual Intel Summit | Potomac Officers Club


The Intelligence Community is constantly evolving to stay ahead of new threats, technologies, global events and adversarial capabilities as focus shifts from counterterrorism to peer and near-peer competition.

In response to these shifts — and an urgent need for widespread modernization across the IC — intelligence leaders are looking at ways to update the intelligence tradecraft, adopt cutting-edge technologies, become more agile, embrace reform and adapt to new classification trends. 

The Potomac Officers Club’s 9th Annual Intel Summit invites IC officials, government leaders and industry executives to discuss the challenges, opportunities, innovation initiatives and technologies shaping the future of the IC.

Influential leaders and decision makers from ODNI, CIA, NGA, DIA and other IC agencies, as well as private sector executives, will convene to share their insights into the vast, dynamic and complex intelligence landscape as it evolves.
