MG (Retired) Bryan Watson here.

 

 AEA will begin hosting a monthly live-virtual professional development forum via Zoom…think “TED Talks for Army Engineer” except more interactive because its live! The intent is to have a discussion by the Regiment for the Regiment focused on interest of junior and mid-career leaders. Topics will range from current tactical unit challenges, USACE projects of interest, emerging technologies…things you want to talk about. The focus will be twofold: 1) latest best practices by small unit leaders in meeting current warfighting challenges and 2) broadening leader perspectives on opportunities across the Army Engineer Profession.
