Posted on Tuesday, March 20, 2018

As enthusiasm builds for the 2018 All Members Conference, ARCS® Foundation is pleased to welcome Lockheed Martin as the presenting sponsor of the event. The annual AMC will be held April 25-28 at the historic Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 100,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The company’s on-going support of ARCS Foundation is an important part of its quest to foster the future of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education in the United States.

“As we look out at the challenges before us in the 21st century, it is clear that educating students in science, technology, engineering, and math is more important than ever for the future,” said Marillyn A. Hewson, Lockheed Martin’s Chairman, President and CEO. “Lockheed Martin is committed to working with policy makers, educators, non-profit groups, and the business community to educate and inspire today’s youth to become tomorrow’s leaders through STEM.”

Lockheed Martin’s presenting sponsorship of the AMC will include significant visibility, a large contingent from the company in attendance at the event, recognition on ARCS Foundation’s website and social media channels and a welcome and introduction of keynote speaker Deborah Wince-Smith at the event’s opening ceremony.

“Sponsorship of the AMC is just one way in which Lockheed Martin continues to display its commitment to ARCS Foundation and the future of American STEM education, and we are thankful for its continued support and generosity,” said Andi Purple, National President of ARCS Foundation. “We look forward to their involvement in this renowned event.”
