Registration Opens for AUSA Now
Registration is now open for AUSA Now, the 2020 virtual annual meeting of the Association of the U.S. Army that will be held Oct. 13–16.
A combination of live and prerecorded programming is planned, including an opening day address from Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy. Defense Secretary Mark Esper, Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville and many other Army leaders also will speak.
A splashy opening ceremony is planned for Oct. 13, beginning about 10 a.m. The schedule for other programs will be set to accommodate live viewing in most time zones.
Several contemporary military forums are planned, as well as special programs for NCOs and soldiers featuring Sgt. Maj. of the Army Michael Grinston, military family seminars and a town hall meeting with Army leaders, and programs aimed at the Army National Guard, Army Reserve and for cadets at the U.S. Military Academy, ROTC and Officer Candidate School.
Retirement planning and benefits presentations are also in the works.
The final day of AUSA Now is set aside for AUSA chapter and region events.
Simultaneous streaming is planned over multiple channels to accommodate the varied programing, which will include Warriors Corner presentations from the Army, xTechSearch briefs from competitors in the Army’s innovation competition, and seminars for small businesses, including the ability to speak directly to Army representatives.
Virtual exhibits will also be part of AUSA Now, including industry engagement opportunities.
Registration is required to view programming and visit the exhibit halls. There is no fee. Membership in AUSA is encouraged but not required, and some member-only promotions are expected.
