Senior leaders from across the Army are lined up to speak at AUSA Now, the Association of the U.S. Army’s 2020 virtual annual meeting.

The meeting kicks off Oct. 13 with an address by Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy. The first day also will feature an initiatives forum by Sgt. Maj. of the Army Michael Grinston and contemporary military forums about diversity and inclusion in the Army, spurring more industrial base innovation, and readiness initiatives.

On Oct. 14, Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville will give a noon address. The schedule also includes a family forum on spouse employment, a homeland security seminar on the Army’s response to COVID-19, and contemporary military forums on personnel programs, Project Convergence and readiness.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper will be the first speaker on Oct. 15. Army leaders will host a town hall meeting focused on family issues, and another forum is planned on permanent change-of-station moves. Talent management and sustainment are among the topics that will be discussed during contemporary military forums scheduled for the day, and there is a professional development forum for NCOs.

The fourth and final day of AUSA Now will be focused on AUSA regional and chapter events.

Additional programs will be available each day of AUSA Now, with simultaneous streams from the virtual exhibits and seminars for the National Guard, Army Reserve, small businesses, warrant officers, Army civilians and retired or retiring soldiers. 

There will also be presentations from the Army’s Warriors Corner and demonstrations by competitors in the Army’s xTechSearch technology competition.
