“The following statement contains information regarding the status of the 2013 Global Leadership Conference (GLC). Due to recent guidance received from the Department of the Army concerning all conferences sponsored by its subordinate organizations, registrations for the GLC are being temporarily suspended pending the receipt of further guidance. Currently, the Department of Defense (DoD) is reviewing all of its activities because of major budget cuts which could result from ongoing Congressional deliberations. These deliberations are extraordinary in terms of their potential influence on military activities. In the event we do not receive an answer from the DoD by March 1st, we will cancel the 2013 GLC.
The Department of Behavioral Sciences & Leadership understands that some participants have already purchased their airline tickets. Consequently, we apologize for any potential losses someone might incur if the conference is cancelled. However, we are obligated to act in a manner commensurate with the guidance issued by our corporate headquarters. Please, bear with us as we attempt to resolve this matter. Our hope is that we can execute what promises to be an influential and thought provoking leader development experience. Thank you for your patience."
