In FY21, Alan L. 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. These programs are also available as online video conferences.
The interests and values of the United States are inextricably tied to states, both large and small, and movements, benign and hostile, throughout the world. At the same time, current U.S. security concerns are broader and more multi-dimensional than at any time in the nation’s history. Senior management in the Department of Defense must confront a global environment that is not only daunting in its complexity, but one that is undergoing vast social, political, and economic changes. Whether the issues are economic, cultural, or ideological, together they form a dynamic challenge to the wisdom and the resources of our foreign policy and defense leadership.This one-day seminar will provide a prestigious faculty who will discuss and evaluate the complex forces that shape defense policy in the years ahead. Talks will be informal and off-the-record. Ample time will be allowed for question-and-answer sessions with each speaker.
Areas to be covered are reflected in the topics below and may be changed to address current issues at the time of the seminar.
- Global Geo-Political Risks and Their Implications
- Emerging Chinese Military, Space and Security Concerns
- The Rise of 21st Century Socialism: Why it Threatens U.S. National Security
- The Cyber-War Theater: Faultlines and Frontlines in the War of the Future

Absolutely enjoyed the program's overall structure. The moderator did a great job of weaving the different topicsD. Merker, Air Force
The experience and breadth of knowledge of all the speakers was spectacular. Their chosen topics for discussion were absolutely relevant to this audience and we were provided several themes that help to guide our planning assumptions.J.C., Joint Enabling Capabilities Command • Professional Development Course February 2017
I benefited from the left-leaning, democratic perspectives that juxtaposed the conservative perspectives. Keep it balanced—it was awesome!M.P., Air Force • Enterprise Perspective Seminar October 2016
