The executive committee met in December and decided to make adjustments to our program as we enter 2022. The January meeting will serve as a transitional meeting where we’ll brief our discussions and outlook for the year.
We have an aggressive agenda, so brevity codes apply. Short update – bullet report format. Focus on those two to three key items or issues for the group’s awareness with greater detail or desired sidebars passed following the close of the meeting.
Moving forward in ‘22, we seek to have input from commands and organizations submitted in advance of the meeting, utilizing our website to provide more detailed, sharable information – freeing up meeting and event time for key items/actions and greater camaraderie in alignment with our mission: “To Find, Connect, and Serve Marines and Their Families”
