Program Description

The China and East Asia Field Seminar will be delivered on site—either on-base or at a suitable nearby hotel. Unlike the programs held on Capitol Hill, class size for field programs will not be limited. Attendee grade and rank requirements, as well, will be at your discretion.

The morning session will feature an introductory segment that will provide an overview of the region and address key themes we are likely to discuss. Four separate presentations will follow. We will then break for lunch.

In the afternoon all of the faculty will participate in an “audience-driven” panel discussion. The interactive panel is identical to the program developed for the “Advanced Senior Leader Development Seminar” held for Major Generals and Tier 2 Senior Executive Service members.

Note: This seminar may also be live-streamed from Capitol Hill to your location.

Absolutely enjoyed the program's overall structure. The moderator did a great job of weaving the different topics

D. Merker, Air Force

Excellent overview of an incredibly important subject given world events and a new administration. Great insights. Great speakers. Well done!

G.G., Air Force • Transnational Issues Seminar April 2017

The exposure to these experts and their wide and varied opinions was fascinating for me. Making sense of the world we live in and overlaying that with U.S. national security interests is the “Kobayashi Maru” of our time…loved it!!!

T.K., Air Force • National and International Secuirty Leadership Seminar March 2017

Fantastic program; great approach to the group in providing interesting/informative, though-provoking information. The day has been well worth my time.

P.Z., Joint Enabling Capabilities Command • Professional Development Course February 2017

Without a doubt the best seminar/training program I have ever experienced during 40 years in federal service. I would take this course once a quarter if possible and have all my people do so also.
