History

The NMIA Ohio History

The National Military Intelligence Association (NMIA) is an affiliation of active and former intelligence professionals dedicated to advancing the discipline of Military Intelligence. NMIA works to shape the future of Military Intelligence by providing products and services to military intelligence professionals, the Intelligence Community, private sector organizations, and our corporate sponsors.

As a professional non-profit association, NMIA provides its members and supporters, the military intelligence community and the public with information, education, recognition, and support to the military intelligence mission. We support conferences, symposia, meetings, and other exchanges of information among members; provide publications and electronic communications to inform members on issues of mutual interest; and support public recognition of military intelligence professionals and organizations through awards programs.

The National Military Intelligence Association (NMIA) was established in 1974, as an Army professional association. It quickly evolved into an organization to provide a professional forum for intelligence professionals in all the military Services, intelligence agencies, offices of the United States Government, Congress, industry, and academia to share ideas for their individual professional enhancement and the good of the Intelligence Community (IC).

NMIA has been, for many years, the sole joint military intelligence professional association for the US armed forces and the various intelligence agencies.

Professional development and collaboration among those involved in and supporting military intelligence is vital, because the intelligence function is a basic element of all military operations: on land, at sea, in the air, and in space. The Joint, combined and interagency orientation of NMIA is increasingly relevant as our nation deals with threats to our security not only overseas but in our homeland.

NMIA-OH is affiliated with NMIA National, embodies the principles and aspirations of the National organization, and has aligned its efforts to reflect its intentions and support its goals and objectives.
