The AOA National Capitol Region Chapter held the second of its Senior Leadership Seminar series Friday, 16 Sept at the Pentagon conference center.  This occasion featured LTGEN Chris Bogdan, Program Executive Officer of the F-35 Joint Program Office who took the opportunity to speak to a packed room of acquisition officers from multiple services.

In his address he spoke about the complications of running a program as large and complex as the F-35 and then lead a “Graduate Level Leadership Discussion” where he expounded candid lessons “that officers might not find in their professional military education.”

The event concluded with a Q&A session and LTGEN Bogdan being awarded the #100 AOA founder’s coin by the Chapter President.
