KEM Attends 2018 AFA Convention – #ASC18

Each year, it is a privilege for our team to attend the Air Force Assocation – Air, Space & Cyber Convention, held in National Harbor. This conference offers unique insight into Air Force developments and includes a detailed update of the State of the Air Force. The 2018 AFA theme was “Multi-Domain Operations: Leveraging the Full Spectrum.”

KEM Director of Contracts Dave Carlson attended the AFA Convention (#ASC18) representing our team, supporting our valued Strategic Partners and current clients in direct support of the warfighter.

Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson’s address was titled “The Air Force We Need.” Key points from the Secretary’s speech included a definitive need for more active, Guard and Reserve Airmen in order to ‘enable the service’s operational squadrons.’ In summation, Secretary Wilson noted,

“The Air Force is more ready for Major combat operations today than we were two years ago. More than 75 percent of our force is combat ready and we’re moving the whole force to higher levels of readiness with actions that will play out over the next several years.”

It was a genuine honor for our team to witness the Secretary present the State of the Air Force and discussion of restoring force readiness, space operations as well its overall future. Our team looks forward to attending this significant event in the future and will continue to monitor the Air Force strategy in all facets.
