As a member-driven organization we’re always seeking your ideas on how to do things better. This Thursday, November 30th, you have an opportunity to join members of CIMSEC’s board in Alexandria, VA, to discuss how we’re doing and offer your thoughts in an informal setting on programming and activities for the coming year. We’ll be meeting at Ireland’s Four Courts near the Court House Metro Station starting beginning at 5:30pm.
The last gasps of DC’s humid summer means it’s time for CIMSEC’s Summer Lightning Rounds: 5 minute presentations by CIMSEC members on their current work in the maritime security world or maritime security challenges they’re grappling with. Join us in the back of the Barracks Row staple The Ugly Mug to mingle, hear the following fine folks sharing a bit of their interests or work from across the maritime spectrum, or consider discussing a bit of your own:
