U.S. Army Acquisition support center press release (Aug. 26, 2005): Army Acquisition Senior Leaders convene in Detroit.

DETROIT -- The 2005 Acquisition Senior Leaders and AMC Commanders Conference, held Aug. 22-25, was hosted by Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology/Army Acquisition Executive Claude M. Bolton Jr., and Gen. Benjamin S. Griffin, commanding general, U.S. Army Materiel Command. The conference provided the AAE, senior Army acquisition and AMC leaders the opportunity to communicate directly with program executive officers; program, project and program managers; acquisition commanders; and Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) commanders. This diverse group of Army senior leaders discussed acquisition transformation, guidance, and policies impacting the AL & T workforce.

This year's SLCC theme was Together, Spiraling Tomorrow's Technology to Soldiers Today! The conference focused on the progress made and challenges acquisition leaders still face in implementing the new LCMCs while at the same time striving to efficiently and effectively equip our soldiers fighting the global war on terrorism.

Building a comprehensive logistics sustainment base through LCMC implementation is an important Army goal and one of the main reasons that this year's invitation-only conference was held in Detroit. Detroit's rich history in automotive technology and industrial manufacturing provided the perfect backdrop for the SLCC and afforded conference attendees the opportunity to tour the Ford River Rouge Plant and the Henry Ford Museum. Conference participants also attended workshops, seminars, and forums that highlighted the Army's commitment to transformation and to spiraling tomorrow's technology to soldiers today.
