The PONI Conference Series is unique in its emphasis on featuring rising experts and young professionals in the nuclear field. The Conference Series draws emerging thought leaders from across the nuclear enterprise and policy community and provides them with a visible platform for sharing their new thinking on a range of nuclear issues.
This event is the third conference in the 2019 PONI Conference Series. The conference will feature presentations on a range of nuclear security issues and a closing reception. We are thrilled to have the Hon. Ellen Lord, Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment join us for a lunch keynote.

Under Secretary Lord is responsible for all matters pertaining to acquisition; developmental testing; contract administration; logistics and material readiness; installations and environment; operational energy; chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons; the acquisition workforce; and the defense industrial base. We look forward to having her share her experiences and insight on issues pertaining to the nuclear enterprise.

A full agenda of the presenters is forthcoming.

All comments made at the conference are off-the-record.
