Monterey Bay Defense Alliance December 2018 Breakfast, December 14

Date: December 14, 2018

Time: 7:30 am

Monterey Bay Defense Alliance (MBDA) is proud to announce Mr. Glen Woodbury, Director of the Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) at the Naval Postgraduate School, as the keynote speaker at our quarterly breakfast meeting. Mr. Woodbury will present an overview of CHDS and a discussion of the vital role it plays in helping keep our country safe. Mr. Woodbury served as the Director of the Emergency Management Division for the State of Washington from 1998 through 2004. In this capacity, he directed the state’s response to numerous emergencies, disasters and heightened security threat levels. Mr. Woodbury was the Director during the World Trade Organization disturbance in Seattle in 1999, the Nisqually Earthquake in February 2001, the TOPOFF II Exercise in 2003, the national response to the attacks of September 11th, and many other natural and manmade emergencies and disasters.

MBDA is a volunteer group organized by the City of Monterey with a mission to preserve and promote the extraordinary network of leading national security assets in the Monterey Bay Area, which we call the Monterey Bay National Security Cluster (MBNSC). The breakfast is the second in a series of meetings intended to encourage dialogue among local community leaders and the leaders of the MBNSC institutions. The goal is to increase awareness, promote collaboration and help create a more robust and resilient national security presence here. Team Monterey, the Department of Defense (DoD) organizations that comprise the core of the MBNSC, employs over 15,000 people and contributes more than $1.4 billion in direct local payroll. With a much larger total economic impact, national security is one of the four main pillars of the Monterey Bay economy, along with agriculture, tourism and education.
