The Defense Intel Alumni Association (DIAA), at the behest of the Director, Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), was founded in 1998 by and for employees, retirees, and prospective retirees who have been associated with the Defense Intelligence Agency.
The mission and goals of DIAA Include:
... Keeping members informed about DIA and world events. ... Informing members of the activities, special accomplishments and whereabouts of other members. ... Providing educational services and information. ... Arranging special activities with DIA. ... Sponsoring social activities to benefit the membership. ... Generating volunteering opportunities for members in support of DIA projects and activities.
Generally in September, DIA opens its doors to DIAA for the annual DIA-DIAA Homecoming. During this well attended program, we are afforded the opportunity to meet with the Director and other senior staff, as well as receiving restricted briefings on world events and exploring our interests through Q&A time with functional and geographic subject matter experts. In addition to the latest information on where the agency is now focused and a sense of challenges DIA is facing, we are also given a good feel for the Agency's "way ahead".
DIAA also holds general member luncheons twice a year with notable speakers. The most recent speaker was the Honorable Director, National Intelligence. We meet at locations around the Washington Metro area. These luncheons and the update from DIA refresh our situational awareness now that we have left the agency. Our annual business meeting generally coincides with the Fall Luncheon.
We also host monthly Defense Intelligence Forums on topics of interest to DIAA members. We have teamed with the Foreign Area Officers Association (FAOA), and other professional groups, in an effort to provide a wide range of activities that will be of interest to our combined members.
Your Participation is needed!
In addition to supporting DIAA with your attendance at our sponsored events, we need your skills, expertise and experiences in helping the association expand its activities and membership. To this end not only do we need you to volunteer your ideas, time and abilities, we also need you to tell other current and former DIA employees, military and civilian, about DIAA. Going a step further, we need you to help us by providing the names and addresses of potential new members you recommend. You are DIAA and your involvement is crucial to the Association's success.
Sincerely, Judi Demulling President, DIAA
