All > DHS/Civ

Bringing together leaders from the Department of Homeland Security, the Potomac Officers Club’s DHS/Civ events address topics about developing, procurement, and fielding advanced technologies to keep our borders safe.

Looking back: Notable DHS/Civ Events

  • The “Border Protection Summit” is an annual event held to discuss the government’s efforts to leverage next-generation technologies for monitoring the United States’ borders. POC invites public and private sector leaders to share their perspectives on the role of companies in the administration’s border security initiatives.
  • In July 2018, top General Services Administration officials participated in the “GSA Plans and Priorities Forum” to give a GovCon and government audience an update on the agency’s acquisition process.
  • The National Vetting Center, which was established at the Customs and Border Protection agency pursuant to National Security Presidential Memorandum-9, was the focal point of POC’s Security Vetting Process Modernization Forum in November 2018.
