May On-Site

May 15, 2024

The Institute for Security Governance Team just wrapped up an action-packed, three-day, in-person on-site at its headquarters in Monterey, California. Drawing over 100 participants from across ISG’s mission, this bi-annual onsite aimed to strengthen the bond between personnel and the Institute; to foster stronger relationships among colleagues; and to achieve tangible process- and implementation-related improvements.

Some of the highlights from the on-site included:

• Director Ian Wexler’s comprehensive update on ISG’s Way Forward.
• Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Global Partnerships Mr. Chris Mewett's keynote remarks on developments in Institutional Capacity Building; recent Security Cooperation workforce reforms; and the importance of Assessment, Monitoring, and Evaluation.
• A moderated discussion on the impact of global conflicts on partner security priorities, featuring three colleagues from the Naval Postgraduate School and the U.S. Naval War College.

Other standout programming included professional development sessions; team-based collaboration sessions, and a number of after-hours socials, where important relationships were forged and strengthened.

We look forward to our next on-site in October, where we will come together to mark the 30th anniversary of the Institute and its predecessor organizations.
