Each summer, AFLCMC Logistics Directorate team members host a conference for product support managers (PSMs). Through June 25 – 27, AFLCMC PSMs will gather at Wright-Patterson AFB to discuss matters of importance to the logistics career field. Uniformed and civilian airmen will also participate in panel discussions and learn from experts, including keynote speaker Steven J. Morani, SES, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Sustainment.

Registration is required to attend and there are some virtual sessions for Center airmen who cannot make the trip to Wright-Patt.

Lansen Conley, SES, and director of the AFLCMC Logistics Directorate, along with deputy director Col. James Wall and product support manager Nelli Hanson recently joined “Leadership Log” to explain why logisticians should commit time to attending the forum. Some of the compelling reasons to attend include:
  • The ability to ask senior leaders questions directly,
  • Experiencing two-way communication with more panels and less PowerPoint,
  • Understanding the needs of the warfighter in the field,
  • Networking with individuals across the Center, including those in adjacent career fields from other organizations.

To hear the full conversation, watch above or on YouTube. You can also listen by searching “Leadership Log” on Apple Podcast, Spotify, Overcast, Radio Public or Breaker.
