Return your completed form and copy of acceptable form of identification (front & back) to Danielle Sanders at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than October 6, 2023.

Your name will be on an IAL base access list. You will be able to proceed through Gate 4 and let the guards know that you are on the IAL for an event at the NIWC Conference Center.
Visitors with a CAC
Visitors who have a CAC can proceed directly through Gate 4.
Directions to Conference Center
You will enter Joint Base Charleston through Gate 4*. Gate 4 address is approx. 1101 Remount Road, Hanahan, SC 29406 (Cross the train tracks and the gate is on the left) which is about 10 minutes/6 miles from Charleston International Airport and the Convention Center. This address will get you to the building just before Gate 4. Once you go through the gate DO NOT continue to follow your GPS, this is just to get you to the gate which does not have its own address.
Once through the gate, proceed about 1/2 of a mile, and the conference center will be the first building on your right. You can park in any of the spaces on either side of the conference center. The 2023 DoD IT & Cybersecurity Summit Classified Breakout Sessions will be held in Building 3112. Enter through the north entrance of Building 3112.
NIWC visitor badges will be available in the front of the building on the day you are assigned to attend. You will only have a badge available on the day you have preregistered to attend if you have passed your clearance. Please do not try to switch days, you will be denied access.
*Attendees without a CAC must submit a JBC Form 111 to be added to the base access list by October 6th. This must be done in advance and by the 10/6 deadline. See instructions above “Visitors without a CAC”.
