Welcome to the 2014 Mission Command Conference!
The culmination event for the USMA capstone core course
on Officership is our 17th annual Mission Command
Conference to inspire graduating USMA, USNA, and ROTC
Cadets to selflessly lead with character and honor, within
a framework of Mission Command principles (ADRP 6.0).
Originally conceived and executed by the Simon Center for
the Professional Military Ethic’s (SCPME) senior mentor,
GEN (Ret) Fred Franks, the conference represents an
opportunity to expose First Class Cadets from multiple
commissioning sources to a wide variety of exceptional
officers and non-commissioned officers from the
operational force.
This year’s conference dates are 22-25 April 2014 (22 & 25
April serve as travel days). Following a day of Mentor-only
training activities on Day 1 (23 April), the USMA and
invited ROTC/USNA Cadets and Midshipmen engage in a
series of Leader-to-Leader Challenges, panel
presentations (Mission Command; Regional Alignment),
and small group discussions on Day 2 (24 April). The end
state of the conference is that soon-to-be commissioned
Cadets and Midshipmen are excited to become officers,
are focused on their commissioning and their future
responsibilities, and are prepared to serve selflessly with
character and honor.
This year’s conference theme is “Building Trust in Today’s
Army” and the keynote speaker is LTG Robert Brown (CAC
Commander). The keynote address will take place on 23
April at 1930 hours in the Ike Hall Theater.
