The highlight of Day Two of AUSA 2022 is the Dwight D. Eisenhower Luncheon address by Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville, but there also will be many events for soldiers and family members.

On-site registration opens at 7 a.m.

In the morning, Lt. Gen. Jody Daniels, chief of the Army Reserve, will lead a seminar, while Sgt. Maj. of the Army Michael Grinston will host a professional development forum featuring senior enlisted leaders from across the Army, including Army Forces Command, Army Training and Doctrine Command, Army Futures Command, Army Materiel Command, the Army National Guard and the Army Reserve.

A military family forum will focus on “Building Connections—Strengthening Personal, Family and Community Relationships,” and Chief Warrant Officer 5 Yolondria Dixon-Carter, senior warrant officer adviser to the Army chief of staff, will lead a professional development forum for warrant officers. 

There will be several professional development programs for Army civilians throughout the day, and Gen. Charles Flynn, commander of U.S. Army Pacific, will lead a forum on land power and integrated deterrence in the Indo-Pacific.

Lt. Gen. Jon Jensen, director of the Army National Guard, will speak at a seminar titled, “Recruiting, Training and Organizing the Army National Guard of 2030.”

After the Eisenhower Luncheon, Douglas Bush, assistant Army secretary for acquisition, logistics and technology, will head a forum titled “Building the Army of 2030: Modernization of Combat Capabilities.”

A Homeland Defense Seminar featuring Air Force Gen. Glen VanHerck, commander of U.S. Northern Command; Lt. Gen. John Evans, commander of U.S. Army North; Deanne Criswell, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency; and other experts will focus on how a whole-of-government response is required to effectively deal with hazards and threats to the homeland.

Army leaders—Army Secretary Christine Wormuth, McConville and Grinston—will appear together at an afternoon town hall meeting to talk about soldier and family programs.

Presentations at the Warriors Corner, in Booth 6927 in Hall D, include discussions on training, special operations, water resilience, force projection, and more. 

At Innovator’s Corner, Booth 2361 in Hall B, the Army xTech Program will showcase winners and finalists from its technology search, with companies showing off new solutions to Army problems. 

The exhibits are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
