Building on our mission to develop better models of engagement between government and industry, the Council facilitates unique and intimate opportunities for member company executives to share their experience and expertise with administration officials, congressional leaders, and other important stakeholders. Our initiatives inform processes and policies, address mission challenges, and improve the management and organization of government agencies, all of which serve to strengthen the entire homeland security enterprise.
The Council also gathers insights from thought leaders throughout the broader homeland security community to assess challenges, identify best practices and offer recommendations to influence the underlying issues governing public-private sector relationships, and make changes where necessary to help both sectors achieve greater mission success.
20/20 Project on the State of the Homeland Security Enterprise
The 20/20 Project on the State of the Homeland Security Enterprise is a five-year initiative of the Council. Embracing the concept of 20/20 ‘clarity of vision’ leading to the 20th anniversary commemoration of 9/11, the Project’s goal has been to serve as a source of information, education, best practices, lessons learned, and suggested actions for the Enterprise.
