The National Character and Leadership Symposium (NCLS) at the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) in Colorado Springs is an annual event, one of the United States’ premier symposia in the field of character and leadership development. This conference brings together distinguished scholars, military leaders, corporate executives, world-class athletes, and others to explore a character-related theme based on the United States Air Force Academy’s institutional outcomes. This symposium provides the opportunity for all Academy personnel, visiting university students and faculty, and community members to experience dynamic speakers and take part in group discussions to enhance their own understanding of the importance and challenges of sound moral character and leadership.
Since 1993, the USAFA Conference has seen a tremendous growth opportunity for the Cadets selected to attend. This type of event provides the Cadets with the chance to share their own experiences with other Cadets from other military academies and to learn from their peers. Additionally, the conference speakers are renowned for either leadership experience or knowledge of the subject. Not only do the Cadets who attend the conference benefit from the event, but they also share their experiences upon their return to enhance excellence among their peers.
Your support for this event in 2018 is still needed. Funding in the amount of $5000 will continue to annually fund this worthwhile conference for the Officer Cadets of the Royal Military Colleges. Call us today to learn more.
Thanks to your continued support this past February 26852 OCdt Alex Gorman, and 26764 OCdt David Domagala had the opportunity to attend the National Character and Leadership Symposium (NCLS) at the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) in Colorado Springs, USA. The main theme of the symposium was the ‘profession of arms’.
The National Character and Leadership Symposium is one that should continue to be funded in years to come. It is an eye-opening experience for the Cadets to view the world through the eyes of professional leaders of all positions, both military and civilian. All speakers had different stories, but many of the same concepts were brought up in discussion, which offered a common ground that Cadets could apply in all situations.
This experience enhances excellence of all who attend and many more Officer Cadets can surely benefit from this symposium. Officer Cadet Gorman and Officer Cadet Domagala would like to thank the donors to the RMC Foundation for providing them with the opportunity and funding to attend NCLS 2016. It is definitely an experience they will remember and refer to in their military careers.
