Butzel Co-Hosts 2023 Michigan Defense Industry AUSA Reception in Washington, D.C.

September 20, 2023
DETROIT, Mich. – Butzel, in partnership with the Michigan Defense Center, an operation of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, and Macomb County, are co-hosting the 2023 Michigan Defense Industry – Arsenal of Innovation Annual Reception on Monday, Oct. 9, 2023, in Washington, D.C.

This invitation-only event brings together global leadership from private industry and high-level military officials.

The reception coincides with the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Expo, which takes place from Oct. 9-11, 2023, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C.

AUSA supports soldiers, their families, and Army civilians and provides a voice for the Army and honors those who have served.

“Michigan’s defense sector continues to grow,” said Beth S. Gotthelf, chair of Butzel’s Aerospace & Defense Industry Team. “This growth is assisted by the MEDC’s relatively new ‘Make it in Michigan’ economic strategy to win more projects, resulting in additional jobs and new business opportunities in Michigan. We are committed to building relationships with, and supporting, Michigan’s defense industry businesses.”
