All attendees must be cleared for Top Secret, and currently indoctrinated for SI and TK access at the time you register.**
Attendees WITH IC blue or green badges do not need to pass clearances.***
Attendees WITHOUT IC blue or green badges must arrange for their Special Security Officer (SSO) or Contractor Special Security Officer (CSS) to send an SSO- or CSSS- originated clearance certification message to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).
The clearance message must be on official letterhead and include the following:
Attendee’s full name
Place of Birth
Country of Citizenship
*Authority for soliciting Social Security Numbers (SSAN) is Executive Order 9397. SSAN’s will be used to identify attendees within the NGA’s access approval system. Disclosure of a SSAN is voluntary, but failure to do so may result in delay or denial of access to the NGA VCC.
**The NGA does not grant interim TK access--applicants for registration must be cleared TS//SI/TK. The NGA will not provide any "read-in/read-out" security services.
***Symposium attendees whether IC badged or not must process through the visitor center to obtain a conference center badge.

Secure Email: WorkforceSupportCenter@nga.ic.gov
Clearance Deadline: March 8, 2012
Timely passage of your clearance/accesses is important. If your clearance is not passed as required, you will not be able to attend the symposium. Deadline for submitting clearances is March 8, 2012.
