DoD Conference Guidance revised Sept 2015

The Department of Defense has posted “Conference Guidance 3.0” on the DoD Conference Policies and Controls web site, http://dcmo.defense.gov/ProductsandServices/DoDConferencePoliciesandControls.aspx. It supersedes and cancels previous guidance.

 

The following guidance should encourage potential MLTW attendees to request their organization to fund TDY:

“Approval authority for conferences with a total cost of$100,000 or less not sponsored or hosted by DoD is delegated to the lowest appropriate level, as follows:

(1) For conferences costing $3,000 or more per attendee or $600 or more per day per civilian employee or military member, approval is delegated to officials who are at the grade of 0-5, GS-14, or equivalent, and at least one level above the supervisors with normal TDY /TAD approval authority for such employees or military members, consistent with organizational guidelines.

(2) For conferences costing less than $3000 per attendee and less than $600 per day per civilian employee or military member, and for no-cost conferences, approval authority is delegated to supervisors with normal TDY /TAD approval authority, consistent with organizational guidelines.”

 

Watch your Service/Command for additional guidance.

"Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense by Dr. Gene Kopelson" presentation at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center

https://youtu.be/9jZSI6bF7d0

Published on Feb 24, 2017

As Ronald Reagan traveled across the United States campaigning for the highest office in the land, the Governor of California possessed an ace in his hand unmatched by his opponents: the ear and advice of former president Dwight D. Eisenhower. Reagan was in constant contact with Ike, following his advice at every turn and going so far as to base his entire 1966 campaign on his mentor’s own successful run years before. Eisenhower’s astute view of internal Washington politics, foreign affairs, military matters, and the swirling pool of primary rivals, provided his protégé the fuel he needed to learn, and eventually win, the war of words. In his latest book, Reagan’s 1968 Dress Rehearsal: Ike, RFK, and Reagan’s Emergence as a World Statesman, Dr. Gene Kopelson outlines the story of Reagan’s first presidential bid with an in-depth look behind the scenes. On Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Dr. Kopelson gave a lecture titled, “Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense,” to delve deeper into the relationship between Reagan and his mentor and how it not only shaped Reagan’s future campaigns, but his presidency, as well.

In his lecture at the USAHEC, Dr. Kopelson uses never-before-tapped audio clips, interviews with the original 1968 campaign staff, Eisenhower’s personal diary, and material straight from personal correspondence to show how Eisenhower influenced Reagan’s politics and eventually, his far-reaching presidential policies. From Reagan’s hawkish views on Vietnam to his perspective on the Arab-Israeli situation, his groundbreaking steps with Gorbachev and the Soviets to nuclear defense, Eisenhower and Reagan had a close and personal relationship which changed America’s future.
