Dear Partners in the Stability Operations Industry,

I truly hope you each enjoyed your Christmas and New Year holiday season. Now we're back at it!

First, I would like to thank the following companies who have joined ISOA, and who have committed to join, since our Summit this past October. This demonstrates your desire to enhance your standing in the stability operations arena:

- ITA International

- Summit Point Raceway Association

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you to all those who came out to our Holiday Reception Monday evening. It was a great success! As one attendee said, "that was the best B-to-B networking event in a social setting that I have ever been to!" If you missed it, there will be monthly opportunities in the coming year.

More and more companies are joining up as new members of ISOA. Don't miss out signing up now for 2017. You know the reasons for becoming a corporate member of ISOA, right?

Dear Professionals in the Stability Operations Industry,

Our most frequently asked question is "what will my company and I get out of joining/re-joining ISOA?" The short answer is "a lot!" The longer answer is to look at what we've done this past year, and more importantly, what we have planned for this coming year. ISOA's recent activity and our exciting plans for 2017 are what make joining ISOA so attractive.

These are the key ISOA events from this past year:


Dear Members,

Now is the time of year to renew your ISOA corporate membership or to sign-up as a new company.

The benefits are many, the most important of which are the following:

- Interact face-to-face with senior government officials who oversee the federal contracts that are important to your business.

- Conduct business-to-business networking with those small, medium, and large companies in order to establish the right partnerships for success in the market place.

- Allow ISOA to take on the tough and thorny issues and advocate on your behalf to the government. Let ISOA fight for your company so you are not out on a limb.

We had a great ISOA Summit last week! To those who were there, thank you for attending and participating. If you couldn't attend the Summit, please try to make it to future ISOA events. Attending our events and joining ISOA will certainly be a "value-add" to you and your company.

The 11th Annual Summit of the International Stability Operations Association is just around the corner. We are the only organization of its kind that allows companies in the stability operations industry to interact with each other and with their government counterparts in professional and social venues.
