On August 22nd the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary District Commodores, Assistant National Commodores, Directors and their deputies, and District Chiefs of Staff participated in a workshop to further discuss the four top items identified from the NTRAIN 2012 brief “Signposts for the Future of the Coast Guard”. The participants identified two common themes across the four discussion topics - succession planning and meeting commitments. They said that leadership is what drives both; and they further suggested a review of leadership training might be in order. There was universal agreement that addressing both of these is critical to the organization.

The report from that session is now available from this link.
