Field Seminars


In FY 2017-18, 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 (featuring five presentations a day). Please note that each program can be modified to address specific areas of concern to individual agencies/organizations.

 

Program Description


The new Administration has entered the White House intent on changing or abandoning a wide range of international commitments. To be successfully, it has become apparent that the Administration must operate in an arena of historic political polarization, both at home and abroad. Many campaign promises have already been modified and uncertainty remains about America’s international role at a level not seen since World War II.

Through of series of off-the-record briefings and group discussions, attendees will review current national security policy from conception to implementation. Speakers will focus on challenges the U.S. faces in specific parts of the world, including Europe, the Middle East, China, Africa, and Latin America.

This one-day seminar will feature a faculty of high-level, internationally-recognized experts who will discuss both the domestic and global implications of the new administration’s policies and their impact on executive leadership in the Department of Defense.
