AEA hosts several events throughout the year that provide opportunities for tradition, camaraderie, and information sharing.
MEIGS Chapter Virtual Luncheon with LTG Spellmon
The AEA Meigs Chapter ( FT Belvoir) Luncheon will be a virtual event this year on 10 March 2020 at 1100 hrs. It is planned for 1 hr event. LTG Spellmon will offer his thoughts on how he sees the Corps of Engineers currently and looking into the future. The event will be hosted by AEA on Zoom and live streamed on FaceBook Live. Our Zoom room will be limited to 60 stations. We recognize that some locations can accommodate multiple viewers. We will prioritize AEA member participation in the Zoom Room. We will livestream on Facebook as well where it is open to all interested parties. We will take questions for the Chief of Engineers from our registrants and filter them down for a question and answer portion of the event. Registration will close 1 March 2021.
2021 Industry Exhibition scheduled for 23-27 Aug, Fort Leonard Wood , MO.
The Industry Exhibition at Engineer Regimental Week is tentatively scheduled for 23 -27 August 2021 at FLW, MO. It will coincide with the Maneuver Support and Sustainment and Protection Integrated Experiment (MSSPIX) 2021. This event is one of the four live prototype assessments conducted each year across the Army in support of Futures Command and ARCIC. The US Army Engineer School is working with the Maneuver Support Center at Fort Leonard Wood to review scheduling and locations to be used by all events of this week.
We have drafted changes to the layout and operations of the Industry Exhibition to enable social distancing and removing those points of potential virus transmission. As the prevalence vaccines are a developing, we will make changes as directed by FLW and the US Army Engineer School for this event.
We anticipate publishing the registration packets for this event in Feb 2021.
As always, we appreciate your support of the Engineer Regiment and AEA looks forward to providing support to our Industry Partners and the Engineer Regiment. Please Contact John Rather at 573-329-6678 for questions on this event.
