The FDCA plays a vital role in Florida’s defense industry ecosystem by promoting the business interests of the Defense Contracting community.  It is my honor to be selected to lead the organization as we seek to “Equip America’s Heroes, while Creating Florida Jobs”.  Our State is entrusted with extensive Military assets, and the substantial industrial base necessary to support our Nation’s defense.

FDCA Florida Defense Expo

FDExpo Banner Small

I hope to see you on November 10, 2015 at the Prime F. Osborn III Convention in Jacksonville, Florida where the FDCA, in conjunction with Congressman Ander Crenshaw, will host the fourth-annual Florida Defense Expo.

The Florida Defense Expo offers an ideal opportunity to bring together military, law enforcement, Homeland Security and other organizations serving our country with businesses dedicated to providing high quality, safe and innovative products and services to our warfighters and first-responders.  Federal, state, and local leaders will also be on-hand to lend support for the defense sector and the brave, dedicated men and women in our Armed Forces.

Paul Stevenson selected as ASME Senior Vice President


As a long-term supporter of engineering students and early career engineers, it’s an honor to be nominated and approved as the Senior Vice President of ASME’s Student and Early Career Development Sector (SECD). This relatively new sector of ASME is only three years young, and I hope to build upon the great work of my predecessor over the next three years by promoting pathways of engagement within ASME for students and early-career engineers globally. Our great volunteers and staff members devote countless hours towards the recognition and career development of our constituents through the development and delivery of exceptional programs and content.
