American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC) San Diego Chapter and Defense Acquisition University Alumni Association (DAUAA) West Chapter Conduct ASMC Training Day 2014 in San Diego, California.

The premiere training event, ASMC Training Day 2014 which was co-sponsored by ASMC San Diego Chapter and DAUAA West Chapter took place on 30 July at DAU classrooms at the Naval Mine Anti-Submarine Warfare Command (NMAWC). This day-long training session, attended by more than 100 members of the local financial management community, was a no-cost event open to ASMC members and DAU graduates. There were sixteen sessions offered on a variety of topics including Congressional Enactment, Critical Thinking, What Every Financial Manager Should Know about DoD Contracts, How to Interpret Contractor's Financials, Leadership through Powerful Questioning, Microsoft Tips and Tricks, How to Write an Effective Reclama and How to Get the Most Out of Your Federal Retirement Assets and Benefits offered attendees the opportunity to learn about current events and hot topics, and network with other financial management professionals. The day wrapped up with a senior panel that included Ms. Karla Horn (Senior Executive Service), Dr. Marv Langston, and CAPT Bill Bry who discussed current events in DoD and took questions from the audience. ASMC hosted a wonderful breakfast and DAUAA held a "Burger Burn" at lunch for ail to attend that allowed attendees to partake in a delicious lunch, skillfully grilled and served by DAUAA members. Attendees spent the lunch hour catching up with colleagues and old friends and networking with other financial management professionals. The feedback on the training event was overwhelmingly positive and ASMC and DAUAA West Chapter have already discussed holding another training day in FY15. Events of this kind provide members an opportunity to attend outstanding training sessions and learn skills that can be applied back at the workplace. ASMC and DAUAA thanks the volunteers and speakers who gave of their time and helped to make this event a huge success.
