A breakfast with Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley and evening lectures with the current U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command commander and a retired four-star who led the Joint Special Operations Command are on tap in January at events hosted by the Association of the U.S. Army’s Institute of Land Warfare.

Online registration is open for all three events.

Milley, who President Donald Trump has announced as his choice to be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs, will speak Wednesday, Jan. 16, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Va., as part of the series of ILW breakfast forums. This will be Milley’s fourth appearance at an ILW breakfast. At the 2018 breakfast, Milley praised progress that had been made in improving the Army’s readiness posture but called for added focus on future readiness. That requires a tenfold increase in warfighting capabilities, he said.

Also on Jan. 16, retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal will speak at AUSA as part of ILW’s Lemnitzer Lecture Series, and will sign copies of his newest book, Leaders: Myth and Reality, which he co-wrote with Jeff Eggers and Jason Mangone. The book profiles the leadership styles of 13 people, from Walt Disney and Coco Chanel to Albert Einstein and Harriet Tubman, to find what works and what doesn’t.

The McChrystal event will also be held at AUSA’s conference and event center, beginning with a 5:30 p.m. reception. Click here:
