President’s Message

I hope 2020 has started well for everyone!

Thank you for welcoming me as the new DAUAA President. As I work to assume this role’s duties, I want to express my sincere thanks, on behalf of the Association, to Bill Bahnmaier for his selfless service as President for the last 15 years. Bill’s passion for the acquisition workforce is evident and I appreciate his willingness to continue working with us to provide forums and networking opportunities.

This year will be filled with occasions to communicate and become agile as we transition towards new training processes to develop acquisition personnel. As President, I pledge to keep everyone apprised of the latest developments and will continue to search for valuable member benefits. Your expectations will inform our direction as we reorganize the DAUAA. How can you help?

Your feedback is important so please take a few minutes to complete this very short survey about the value of your DAUAA membership. I look forward to working with you and hope to see everyone at our next event.

Lastly, DAUAA is now part of the AmazonSmile program. By purchasing eligible items, Amazon matches 0.5% of the purchase price for the Association’s use. For more details, go to
