Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville and leaders from Army Forces Command, the XVIII Airborne Corps and the 82nd Airborne Division are among the scheduled speakers at the Association of the U.S. Army’s Warfighter Summit and Exposition.

A new AUSA event, the Warfighter Summit will take place July 27–28 at the Crown Complex near Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The two-day, in-person summit is a leader and professional development event focused on the warfighter, and its theme is “America’s Response Force: Ready Today, Ready Tomorrow.”

McConville will be the keynote speaker to open the summit. Sgt. Maj. of the Army Michael Grinston and leaders from across Fort Bragg will also appear. Additionally, Alejandro Villanueva, former Army Ranger and former offensive tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens, is slated to speak. 

During the two-day summit, presentation topics will span the seven warfighting functions and highlight the way Army operational forces can sharpen their capability edge for winning throughout the expanded competitive space.

Attendees will hear about building family readiness, equipping the future force and the Army’s support to NATO allies in Eastern Europe. There also will be opportunities to network with key decision-makers and learn from industry about the latest equipment, products and technologies aimed at addressing warfighters’ needs.

Online registration is open until July 20. There is no cost for military and government civilian personnel and members of the media.

All attendees, exhibitors and speakers are to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Masks are optional.

AUSA continues to monitor recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health authorities, and health requirements are subject to change.
