January 14: International COI Education Opportunities

International COI Education Opportunities

Thursday, January 2021 at 1700 GMT /1800 Berlin / 1200 Washington, DC / 0700 Honolulu / 2000 Doha / 0200 Tokyo (15 Jan)

Presenter:

CAPT Scott Raymond, P.E., Chief Engineer, Logistics Directorate (ECJ4), U.S. European Command

Abstract:

The webinar will summarize current EUCOM theater posture initiatives and provide an overview of planned construction, convergence with NATO Allies, and efforts in support of current operations. USEUCOM continues to update its plans and lines of efforts accordingly to the challenges facing the European Theater. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there continues to be a very active tempo going into 2021 for future planning efforts. All of this requires supporting infrastructure which is planned & built in accordance to the USEUCOM Theater Infrastructure Plan.

Learning Objectives:

1) Understand the USEUCOM posture initiatives and how it supports the Theater Infrastructure Plan (TIP).

2) Understand the current funding sources, to include the European Defense Initiative (EDI) funds, and how they are being managed by DoD and the Services when applied towards infrastructure construction/maintenance projects.

3) Understand the ongoing challenges within the European Theater as Theater Engineers converge with NATO Allies and execute the planned construction program – including the new US-Poland Enhanced-DCA and the burden-sharing with Polish Provided Infrastructure.

February 10: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wildlife Flood Risk Management R&D

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wildlife Flood Risk Management R&D

Wednesday, February 10, 2021 | 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT

*Login information for this Webinar will be sent to you separately*

Speaker:

Ian E. Floyd, Principal Investigator, Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory (CHL), U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC)

Moderator:

Mike Pampalone, Senior Vice President, Homeland Security and National Resilience, ICF 

Description:

This presentation will discuss wildfire effects to U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) flood risk management and emergency management missions and demonstrate recently developed USACE modeling capabilities for predicting post-wildfire flood risk. This R&D is focused on better understanding and predicting post-wildfire flood and debris flow events. This research is conducted in partnership with the USACE Institute for Water Resources, Hydrologic Engineering Center (IWR-HEC), and with all districts within both USACE South Pacific Division (USACE-SPD) and USACE Northwest Division (USACE-NWD). With the goal of developing, (a) fast but reliable methods to assess post-wildfire flood risk, and (b) quantitative methods to predict changes in stream flow and sediment runoff processes following wildfires for planning and designing of flood and debris flow control measures.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the effects of wildfires on flood risk management and emergency management communities-of-practices.

  2. Develop an understanding of the ongoing USACE R&D mission and the need across western USACE district.

  3. Improve understanding of post-wildfire modeling capabilities and current-state-of-practice limitations.

  4. Review the future USACE R&D direction and importance of closely linking practitioners with the R&D community to address unique challenges like wildfires and climate change.

   Facilities Management Workshop


“The mix of being able to get some continuing education, interact with other government folks and the private sector, and do so in formal, open and social settings: I know of very few (maybe no) other venues where you can get cross discipline interactions across the private and public sector in a variety of settings.
No one else does this.”

–Lawrence Schorr, 787th Civil Engineer Squadron, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J.
