The highest priority of the New Hampshire Aerospace and Defense Export Consortium (NHADEC) is protecting the safety and well-being of members, partners, and supporting team. In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have decided to postpone the annual networking event to 2021.

We recognize that this schedule change may affect your near-term business plans, and we hope that making this adjustment now will afford you the opportunity to make other plans. In the meantime, the NHADEC team will continue to provide updates and access to virtual programs and activities via the NEWS section on www.nhadec.com, so please check back regularly.
