10:00 AM Breakfast
10:30 AM Program
The Clubs at Prestonwood

In 2018, the Trump administration issued a “conventional arms transfer” policy designed to speed up international arms sales with the stated goal of increasing American jobs. Arms manufacture and exporting has long been used by the U.S. as a foreign policy tool. The U.S., by far the largest arms exporter in the world, is also the leading producer and consumer of high-end weaponry. In 2018, the countries of the world, including the U.S., spent $1.78 trillion dollars on weapons, naval systems and combat aircraft. 

In the second of our “101” series, we will learn about this industry’s place in global commerce and geopolitics, including U.S. national security and foreign policy, and the role of Congress in approving military sales. 

Panelists include Julie Goodman, a Dallas-based international trade consultant; Steve Mathias, Vice President of Military Sales & Strategy at Bell Helicopter Textron; and John Ward, who served as Vice President, Domestic Business Development for Lockheed Martin Corporation.
