    Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce 2018 Redstone Update


    Redstone Arsenal is the economic engine that powers roughly half of the Huntsville metro economy. Commands and agencies on the Arsenal are responsible for the management of more than $50 billion in federal spending. Each fall, we invite our Chamber members to peek behind the curtain and hear directly from the Arsenal’s highest ranking military leaders and senior executives.

    Our annual Redstone Update will highlight Redstone’s diverse roles and missions. It will also provide insight about the commands, federal agencies and organizations on the installation. The Redstone Update includes morning panel discussions, followed by a luncheon with a keynote presentation from the Redstone Senior Commander.
