Mission Essential Personnel Sponsors Center For A New American Security Annual Conference
– Mission Essential Personnel, LLC (MEP) today announced that it is the platinum sponsor of the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) annual conference
. This year CNAS will examine how the United States can manage global risk and seize opportunities in a time of growing economic constraint. The event will take place on June 2 in Washington, DC.
“It’s a privilege to support CNAS in any capacity, but particularly this year,” said MEP CEO Chris Taylor. “Our current national security demands are at their highest in decades, while the resources to meet those demands are hotly debated and now more scarce. Threading this needle requires the kind of innovative thinking and disciplined discourse we’ve come to expect from CNAS. MEP is honored to contribute and I eagerly anticipate the conference.”
Featured topics of the conference will include:
· cyber security and Internet freedom
· the rapidly evolving Middle East
· a new phase of the war in Afghanistan
· cooperation and competition in the Asia-Pacific
“For the past four years, the CNAS Annual Conference has brought together top experts to discuss the most pertinent national security topics of the day,” said CNAS President Dr. John Nagl. “Our Fifth Annual Conference will continue in that tradition, and CNAS is grateful for MEP’s support in helping make the event possible.”
