Registration is now open for the Association of the U.S. Army’s Warfighter Summit and Exposition in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Scheduled for July 26–27 at the Crown Complex near Fort Bragg, the two-day, in-person summit is a leader and professional development event focused on the warfighter. This is the second year AUSA is hosting the Warfighter Summit.

This year’s theme is “America’s Army: Ready for Today, Modernizing for 2030 and Beyond.”

There will be presentations by Army senior leaders and commands based on Fort Bragg, one of the Army’s largest and busiest installations, as well as experts from industry and academia.

The summit’s primary focus is the soldier and the defense industry professionals who support the warfighter, and topics of discussion will span the six warfighting functions and highlight the way Fort Bragg’s operational force can win on the future battlefield.

The summit also will link soldiers and senior leaders with industry partners to increase understanding of the Army’s emerging requirements and strengthen the partnership between Fort Bragg, AUSA and the surrounding community.

There also will be exhibits showcasing the latest from industry.

Last year, during the inaugural Warfighter Summit, Gen. Andrew Poppas, commander of Army Forces Command, said the Army needs teams of warfighters “who train and retrain” on the fundamentals. “They don’t do it until the task is right, but they continue to execute until they are incapable of getting it wrong,” he said during a keynote speech. It isn’t easy, he said. It takes professionalism, proficiency, discipline and physical fitness, Poppas said. It also takes “up-to-date training and realistic conditions and an absolute winning attitude,” he said.

This hard work is required because the Army and its warfighters must be ready, Poppas said. “We must be ready for what comes next,” he said. “America is entering a new era of global security challenges, and with it we are ushering in a new generation of warfighters,” Poppas said.
