Mini-PDI

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 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. We had a fantastic line-up of speakers and presentations, and the event was a great success! It ran as two half-days, 8:00am-12:00pm on 12-13 April.

For those who attended, we plan to send out the training certificates with your awarded CPEs in two to three weeks. As far as marking the training complete in ETMS or requesting CLPs through AcqNow, we cannot do that for you. Please work with your training managers as necessary to close out the training in the systems and claim your CLPs.

Here is the list of speakers and topics, and links to the slides (CAC required) that we have permission to redistribute:

  • Brig Gen Michael Greiner – Opening Remarks (no slides used)

Mr. Diehl’s presentation garnered enough questions that we had to copy them down and send them to him! He was gracious enough to write out answers and send them back to us. Click here for the write-up of the Q&A with Mr. Diehl.
