Field Programs


In FY 2018, Alan L. Freed Associates is offering a menu of one-day field programs that can be presented at military installations around the United States. The format for each field program is identical to the programs held on Capitol Hill. Please note that each program can be modified to address specific areas of concern to individual agencies/organizations.

 

Program Description


Africa’s political and economic weaknesses, along with civil and regional strife, directly affect U.S. national security. At the same time, the presence of enormous energy, mineral and agricultural resources make several African states key components of the global economy. If Africa has largely been ignored in the foreign and economic affairs of the major powers in the past, it is clearly now on the international agenda. There has probably never been a better time to consider the challenges and promises of Africa to U.S. national interests. This one-day seminar will examine these issues.

Felt like “Neo” in the Matrix—mass influx of expert information in a concise and rapid-fire format. Awesome!

End-to-end, an amazing group of speakers, with most diverse backgrounds. I could listen to each of the speakers for hours on end. Their collective knowledge is truly incredible.

The speakers were excellent & the seminar was well-organized. I would definitely attend a future Alan Freed event.

Truly outstanding insight/superior historical background and great stories born throughout scars of experience; I attended National War College and they are known for great speakers/first-hand experience - yours were better. Huge thanks; extremely well done!
