A much shorter blog for this week, letting you all know that we have locked in the date for the next virtual town hall. Mark your calendars for Thursday, June 23 at 5 p.m. EDT.
The last town hall was a huge success. I received a lot of great feedback, but as I stated in an earlier blog, I felt that the first town hall was too wide in focus. So for this town hall, I would like to limit the discussion to the first Line of Effort of the NCO 2020 Strategy, which is Leader Development.
The town hall will provide another great opportunity for Soldiers to ask questions and provide feedback on leader development within the Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development System. Joining me for this event will be command sergeants major from the Combined Arms Center, U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy, Army University and others critical in our work in LOE 1.
This time, we are going to try some new things, including opening up the chat board at 4 p.m. EST – one hour before we start answering questions on the panel. This way, we can have more questions for our discussion.
Also, I’d encourage you to join me on Twitter during this town hall using the hashtag #TRADOCtownhall.
Once again, we are looking for video questions to use during the town hall. I cannot think of a better way to be heard and share your ideas or concerns. Be sure to post your videos – or typed questions directly to TRADOC’s Facebook page or upload to Twitter using the hashtag #TRADOCtownhall.
Be a part of this – your voice and experiences are important to us, and help to shape our efforts. We are listening.
