AUP’s goal is to provide quality leadership education and opportunities to its members. To achieve that, AUX Christian Bowers and AUX Luis Meyer, both of the Remote Collaborative Unit, attended one of the Coast Guard’s premier leadership training events, attending the 29th Annual RADM Thomas Wetmore Ethics Forum at the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT. The two-day event, held 22-23 March 2018, featured keynote speakers, seminars with military and business professionals, and luncheons with fellow students from across the country. The end result was an immersive experience and opportunity to examine the ethical practice of leadership and command.
Additionally, students had the opportunity to tour the Research and Development Center, also located in New London. Students received a behind-the-scenes look at the latest technological advances that the Coast Guard is preparing for the fleet.
