CALL FOR LOA AWARD NOMINATIONS DUE 31 AUG 2015
Is Your LOA Chapter L.I.V.E? We know there are many deserving LOA members who’ve devoted countless volunteer hours to education, mentorship and enhancing our professional development missions this last year. Has your chapter made innovations with education or outreach? Why not be recognized and share your successes.
Just like the 2015 Symposium theme, we will recognize those among us who have displayed Leadership, Innovation, Velocity and Excellence (LIVE). We invite you to recognize and share their story.
Please submit your Logistics Officer Association Award nominees IAW the LOA Guidance-5 directly to VP@loanational.org no later than 31 August 2015. It is best to send packages as PDF and minimize file sizes. Photos should be sent separately. The nomination committee will determine the winners by 15 September and the LOA National Board will announce during the 2015 LOA Symposium in Washington, DC, October 19-22, 2015. Read entire article
CALL FOR LOA SCHOLARSHIP NOMINATIONS DUE 2 OCT 2015
It is our great pleasure to announce the 2015 National LOA Scholarship Program, which aims to build tomorrow’s logistics professionals. We know there are 100s of outstanding leaders within our ranks that deserve a helping hand and a “thank-you”. This includes our civilians, Airmen, NCOs, and junior officers. Just like the 2015 Symposium theme, we need “Leadership. Innovation. Velocity. and Excellence.”
An epic fail, if all you do is forward my note…go find a young quiet hard-charger and submit them. Supporting rising stars in their education is an important part of our LOA organization’s mission. Be part of that effort to create the next generation and select your Chapter scholarship nominees. More than a few years ago, a young maintenance officer did just that and helped change my life forever. I challenge you to help me pay it forward.
SAVE THE DATE FOR “LOA2015″ | 19 – 22 OCTOBER | AF Approved!
LOA2015’s theme is Leadership, Innovation, Velocity, and Excellence (LIVE). The LOA Symposium team is led by Col Eric Ellymer and Col Rick Dugan, Retired.
