Summary The PI and invited subject matter experts will convene a conference in April 2011 to provide a forum on the dimension and vision for DoD FAO programs. This conference presents future FAOs from all services with a unique opportunity to optimize critical skills required of Political-Military and Regional Affairs Specialists. By discussing key FAO characteristics, roles, and responsibilities in an open forum, participants can engage panel members, acquire greater professional knowledge, and build networking capacity to establish a solid foundation in FAO expertise essential in future FAO assignments. This conference fills a gap in the FAO education and training pipeline by facilitating greater awareness and dialogue, benefitting future FAOs and their spouses and the FAO community at large.
