JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO - RANDOLPH, Texas - In an effort to fuel collaboration amongst Air Education and Training Command innovators, AETC’s Analysis and Innovation Directorate (AETC/A9) will host the Command’s next virtual iSummit September 24, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. CDT.

The primary goal of AETC’s Innovation Summit is to allow innovators across the command to share knowledge, learn from others’ experiences, and hear about unit successes and challenges. 

“We had a positive event with our first virtual summit back in June, discussing opportunities available to innovation teams to overcome obstacles and identify pathways, in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Col. William Mamourieh, AETC/A9 director.  “The event was widely attended with participants ranging from staff sergeant to brigadier general.”

The upcoming iSummit theme is “COVID-19: Innovative Airmen Elevating through Crisis.” 

“Our agenda includes experts from multiple AETC units discussing how they accelerated innovation opportunities while contending with the pandemic.  We have also asked our AETC Historian to discuss COVID-19 lessons learned,” said Mamourieh.  

The AETC History office has been collecting COVID lessons learned across AETC since the crisis began.
