Registration is open for the Association of the U.S. Army’s Hot Topic event April 13.

“Army Installation Partnerships for Mission Assurance,” part of AUSA’s 2022 Hot Topic series, is an in-person, daylong event that will take place at AUSA headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. 

The theme for the event is “Executing the Army Installations Strategy.” 

Throughout the day, attendees will be able to participate in a professional dialog with Army leaders, industry and academia as they explore the Army’s strategy for ensuring that installations can perform their warfighting missions.

Additionally, key leaders will highlight how the Army maintains support for soldiers in today’s threat environment. The discussion will provide ways to mitigate those threats and identify potential partnerships with state and local governments as well as the private and nonprofit sectors to increase installation resilience.

Paul Farnan, principal deputy assistant Army secretary for installations, energy and environment, will be the keynote speaker. Leon Panetta, a former defense secretary who also served as CIA director, is among the speakers scheduled to discuss topics including climate change, threats to critical infrastructure, what happens when the grid fails, and cyber threats.

As it resumes in-person events, AUSA continues to monitor recommendations from local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Hot Topic attendees are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Masks are optional.

Online registration is open through 5 p.m. Eastern April 11, and there is no cost for media or military and government civilian personnel. On-site registration is available from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 13.

The Hot Topic begins at 8 a.m. Eastern.
