The 2015 Fort Leavenworth Ethics Symposium will be conducted April 20-23. This year’s theme is “The Professional Ethic and the State.” The symposium will include a variety of guest speakers, panel sessions, and general discussions.
This year’s symposium will explore the responsibilities and obligations between the United States and its military. We are on the brink of a new era following more than a decade of war. Many factors indicate this era will be characterized by difficult choices for the services and our civilian leadership. At the heart of these challenges lie the Army’s emerging doctrine and ethic of the military profession and the contract between the soldier to the state. What does the soldier owe the state; and, what are the state’s responsibilities to the soldier in return for his or her service and sacrifice to the nation?
The conference typically begins at 4 p.m. on Monday and concludes at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday. There is a formal reception at 5 p.m. on the first day and a dinner at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Dress for those events is jacket and tie/Class A or ASU uniform. Business casual or duty uniform is suitable for the rest of the week. Specific details about the 2015 symposium are still in the planning stages.
