Industrial Associates

Industrial Associate (IA) Membership

The IA membership, which began more than 45 years ago, is a unique aspect of the chapter that has proven to be both relevant and influential in the Los Angeles area and with our Army leadership.

The IA membership hosts several “members-only” dinners each year. These dinners are scheduled around visits to Southern California by General Officers and other Department of Defense guests. The intimate events provide a venue for the guest to speak openly on the subject of their choice. The talks are always very informative and provide an excellent opportunity for furthering relationships between the military and local Defense Industry leadership. Our local General Officers often attend the dinners, which allows for even greater discussions.

The cost of the dinners is included in the annual membership fee of $2500. The meals are outstanding, with truly five-star food and beverages!

The highlight of the year for our IA members is the annual City Tavern Dinner held each October during the AUSA Annual meeting. This elegant event is held at the historic City Tavern club in Georgetown – it is truly one of the “hottest tickets” of the week! Limited to just 110 attendees, it is fun, intimate, and a wonderful time for both our government and industry guests. There is an additional charge for the City Tavern dinner.
