NDIA Rocky Mountain Chapter Welcomes You!

NDIA is a 501(c)3 corporate and individual membership association that engages thoughtful and innovative leaders to promote the best policies, practices, products, and technology to build a more responsive and collaborative community in support of defense and national security.

The Rocky Mountain Chapter is an independent chapter of NDIA, following all policies and initiatives. NDIA is the national leader in promoting the highest level of business ethics in the defense and national security community. Our member companies have the highest calling to leadership in demonstrating ethical standards that are the benchmarks for the industry.

It is with great sadness I share the news that on Saturday, February 23, 2019, Mickey Hartinger passed away. We are so grateful for all of the love and support Mickey provided us over the many years and Mickey will be deeply missed.


Each year the Rocky Mountain Chapter of NDIA selects one person to receive the one-time award of the prestigious Gen James V. Hartinger Award. Since 1984, our chapter has recognized individuals for their outstanding achievement in the military space mission of the United States during the preceding calendar year, and/or long-term contributions to this field.

The Hartinger Award Selection Committee each year reaches out to all of the members of the Rocky Mountain Chapter to nominate qualified candidates. The Hartinger Award will be presented at the Annual Rocky Mountain Ball.

Nominees must be US citizens and may be from any branch of the military services, or civilians from the government or industry. The Selections Committee needs your nominations!
