Mini-PDI

2024 | 2023 |2022 | 2021 | 2020 | 2019 | 2018 | 2017

Each year, the Aviation Chapter of ASMC hosts a one-day Professional Development Institute (PDI). Taking the spirit and goals of the National PDI, this Mini-PDI is shorter and focused on the needs of the local workforce surrounding Wright-Patterson AFB. Keep reading for information about our upcoming and past Mini-PDIs, including presentation slides where available.

ASMC Mini-PDI 2024

This year’s Mini-PDI was highly successful! The theme for the 2024 Mini-PDI was “Financial Fusion.” Building on the momentum gained at last year’s Mini-PDI, we had notably larger attendance at the Wright-Patt Club & Banquet Center on 2 May. A big shout out to all the wonderful presenters and all the people who worked hard to prepare for and execute the event!

We had a top-notch speaker line-up! Here is the list of speakers and topics along with links to their biographies and slides (CAC required for both). Video recordings coming soon!

ASMC Mini-PDI 2023

We had an amazing time seeing everyone! The theme for the 2023 Mini-PDI was “Reflect, Reconnect, Recalibrate.” This was our first in-person Mini-PDI in several years, and this time we held it at the Wright-Patt Club & Banquet Center on 25 April. The energy was abuzz, and the speakers and presentations were fantastic! A big thank you to the presenters and all the people who worked to make this event happen.

We had a terrific line-up of speakers! Here is the list of speakers and topics along with links to their biographies and, where have permission, slides and video (CAC required for both):

(Note: The video recording was a bit of an experiment. We certainly learned a lot in the process. The morning session recordings have short audio glitches roughly once every two minutes.)

ASMC Mini-PDI 2022

The theme for the 2022 Mini-PDI was “Engage: Analytical and Innovation Success in a Virtual Realm.” This event was our second fully virtual Mini-PDI, this time hosted on the ZoomGov platform.
