Current Army Directives for Conference Attendance
The latest guidance from the Secretary of the Army’s office, dated 17 Oct, suspends military/government attendance at all Non-Federal Entity (NFE) events, unless a waiver is submitted. This does not include those local personnel that can attend at zero cost to the government.
Further guidance is expected out of the Secretary’s Office by 31 Dec 2012. Until then AAAA continues to work with all our military, government and industry partners to ensure our events meet each directive that is issued from OSD and refined by the Secretary of the Army. This includes Army directive 2011-20, dated 14 Oct 2011 requiring sponsored NFE events at execution fall below the "majority" DA speaker threshold.
At this time all events scheduled by AAAA are still on and we look forward facilitating the exchanging of ideas and dissemination of information pertinent to Army Aviation at each of our events.
