Air Force Security Assistance Center to host Security Cooperation Conference.

The Air Force Security Assistance Center will host the Security Cooperation Conference November 3 to 4, 2009 in the Marriott RiverCenter in Covington, Kentucky. The conference will bring together security assistance practitioners from across the Department of Defense to meet with representatives from industry and from international partner nations to build on the conference theme "Transforming the Enterprise to meet the needs of our Global Partners."
 We're very excited to host this conference on behalf of the Air
 Force, said Brigadier General Joseph Lanni, AFSAC commander. It
 promises to be an open and frank interchange of ideas that we
 expect will help improve the security assistance process for
 everyone involved.

The agenda was prepared with "jointness" in mind, according to Nancy Hudson, AFSAC's Conference Planning lead.
 We selected topics that reach across service boundaries to share
 process improvement efforts, crosstalk on best practices and
 enhance mission effectiveness, Ms. Hudson said. We've also set side
 time for service-specific breakout sessions to address unique

This will be the second Tri-Service Security Cooperation Conference, The Army hosted the inaugural conference in 2007. The event is expected to draw more than 200 people and 30 vendors.

Coinciding with the conference will be a Foreign Disclosure conference designed to address the many similarities between the services in this area.

Any questions can be forwarded to AFSAC/XP at (937) 257-1132.
