DynCorp International participated in the 2011 Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting & Exposition, which took place Oct. 10-12 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
DI team members were on hand at the DynCorp International booth to inform attendees about DI’s capabilities, and meet with key customer and partners in the defense industry.
The AUSA 2011 Annual Meeting & Expo highlighted “America’s Army: ‘The Strength of the Nation.’” This year’s show utilized two extra exhibit halls, allowing for greater exhibitor booth space. Also new this year, Business to Business Suites located on the exhibit floor were available made available to AUSA sustaining members. The suites offered semi-private conference, meeting, and theatre space.
Approximately 70,000 attendees participated in the trade show, programs and events.
The purpose of Army-wide participation in the AUSA Annual Meeting is to enhance soldier professional development and to set the conditions for a positive outcome in the Army’s two major priorities—maintain our combat edge while reconstituting the force for other missions and building resilience of the U.S. people.
Professional Development for Soldiers
Professional development opportunities included seminars and special presentations on the Global War on Terrorism, the Army’s Transformation to the Future Force, LandWarNet, Expeditionary Logistics, Actionable Intelligence and other issues affecting today’s Army.
AUSA 2011 aims to have the Army’s requirements and priorities for the immediate, and long-term, future are well understood by the public and Army supporters/champions, and to have the Army’s reputation as a world class fighting force be further enhanced through the effective integration of themes and messages across the Army.
AUSA’s Family Programs Directorate also hosted four Military Family Forums. In addition, there was an AUSA Family Programs Pavilion on the main exhibit floor featuring a variety of organizations which support military families. The Military Family Forums were open to all Annual Meeting attendees.
