    We live in a time of complex and interlocking threats that pose a danger to our security and a challenge to our ability to manage them. Many of these threats --- Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, radical Islamist terrorism --- are in the newspapers daily, but two other threats --- the networking of illicit networks, and our broken political system are so insidious that we often do not recognize them for the deadly threats that they have become. 

    Our tour guide for these threats and the countermeasures to them is Dr. Joseph J. Collins, a retired Army Colonel with 44 years of service to the nation and the Department of Defense. An expert in strategy and modern warfare, Dr. Collins is the Director of the Center for Complex Operations at the National Defense University, a think-tank devoted to the study of irregular warfare and stability operations. A former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, he will be an ideal speaker on this difficult and sometimes convoluted subject.

    The buffet luncheon will open at 11:30 AM. Dr. Addicott will speak from Noon to 1 PM and will take questions from audience. Luncheon prices are $35 for members, $45 for non-members, and $27 for full time students or military in uniform.There is a 15% Early Bird discounted price for the luncheon which ends noon Monday June 5. Being a member will save you $10 on this event.
