National PDI 2018 - Denver

  • 1.  National PDI 2018 - Denver

    Posted 01-17-2018 10:24
    Welcome to "Engage"!  I want to thank Kat and the ASMC staff for all the work they have done to successfully launch Engage to our 17,000+ members. I know you will find this collaboration platform valuable.  We previously pilot tested it among ASMC Chapter Presidents for a few weeks and we will be launching other groups - Chapter Membership Chairs, Treasurers, etc as well.

    I'm starting this discussion subject area within our All Member Community for any and all questions, comments, etc. regarding our upcoming National PDI in Denver from 30 May - 1 June 2018. I'm happy to report that our PDI Chair, Laura Sandy a member of our Pikes Peak Host Chapter, and her committee chairs and members are doing very well, in coordination with ASMC HQ, in preparations for another great ASMC training and learning event. Our Professional Development Committee, chaired by Glenda Schiener, and assisted by Derald Emory (PDI Program Coordinator here at HQ) has approved a great program of learning that will include a total of 113 sessions, consisting of Mini-Courses and workshops for Thursday and Friday of PDI. Additionally, the Departments of the Army, Air Force, and Navy; as well as OUSD(C) for Defense-Wide and also US Coast Guard are developing their Service Day agendas for Wednesday of PDI. We plan to launch registration for PDI the week of 26 February. Our PDI 2018 Theme is "Mountains to Climb: Achieving Peak Performance." I look forward to seeing many of you in the Mile High City.

    Having served a few years ago as the Acting Deputy Director of the United States Mint, I especially recommend the Denver Mint Tour for those of you arriving Denver in time to participate in one of three tours scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, 29 May that the Denver Mint Director was nice enough to dedicate to our group. The tour of the Mint is free; however, tickets are limited. The Denver Mint allocated three tours of 50 people each to ASMC, so 150 tickets are available. You just have to show up 30 minutes in advance of the start of the tour with your ticket, which you will receive at the on site PDI Registration area, if you are one of the lucky individuals who register for the tour in time to reserve one of the limited number of tickets.

    You can register for the tour via the special events link at our PDI 2018 website or use the following url to access it directly:

    Good Afternoon Folks -

    Just wanted to let you all know that Wednesday's (May 30) PDI Luncheon Session speaker will be Jeffrey E. Mittman!

    His bio is below:

    Jeffrey E. Mittman

    Master Sergeant (Ret), United States Army

    In 21 years of service including four tours of combat, Jeff Mittman claims he only had one bad day.  

    In 1990 he deployed to the Middle East as part of Desert Shield and Desert Storm.  Following 9/11, he was a platoon sergeant with the 101st Airborne's "Rakkasans!" His unit was one of the first into Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. While there, his platoon conducted more than 100 combat missions - without losing a single soldier.  Returning to Fort Campbell he was quickly redeployed as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Again, his platoon conducted hundreds of combat missions without a friendly casualty. In 2005, he was sent back to Iraq as an advisor to the forces of the Iraqi Ministry of the Interior.

    ONE BAD DAY: On the morning of 7 July, 2005, MSG Mittman's team came under attack. He was severely injured by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).  Near death, his wounds included severe head and facial trauma, as well as, numerous other injuries.  He awoke a month later in a military hospital with his wife by his side. He quickly realized his family needed a husband and a father, not a memory. At that moment he made a conscious decision to survive – to recover.  Together the Mittman family began the arduous process of acclimating to their "new normal." It involved learning to deal with his blindness and enduring more than 40 operations to rebuild his face and body. 

    Despite everything he's been through, Jeff counts his blessings and will tell anyone who asks that he is "the luckiest man in the world."  He is a requested speaker across the United States giving lectures and sharing the lessons he has learned from his experiences.  His awards and decorations include the Bronze Star Medal (3rd Award); the Purple Heart Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal; the Army Commendation Medal (8th Award); the Army Achievement Medal (7th Award); the Combat Infantryman's Badge (2d Award); the Expert Infantryman's Badge; the Pathfinder Badge; the Parachutist Badge; the Drill Sergeant Identification Badge; and the Air Assault Badge along with various other awards and decorations.

    Since his retirement, MSG Mittman has worked in both the public and private sectors. His nationally recognized awards include: the 2013 Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) and Department of Defense (DoD) Disabled Employee of the Year Award; the American Foundation for the Blind's 2011 Gallagher Award for mentoring and serving as role model for blind / visually impaired individuals; the 2010 Osborne "Oz" Day Award presented by the federal government for increasing public awareness of the federal AbilityOne Program; and the Lighthouse International's 2007 Henry A. Grunwald Award honoring outstanding public service. He is also a 2015 inductee of the Indiana Military Veterans Hall of Fame and has received the Meritorious Civilian Service Award from the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS).

    MSG Mittman currently serves the community as a board member of Bosma Enterprises (http://www.bosma.org). 

    He holds a Bachelor of Science in Resource Management from Troy University, a Master of Arts in Executive Development from Ball State University, and a Master of Business Administration also from Ball State.  He lives with his wife, Christy and their two children in New Palestine, Indiana and currently works for DFAS in Indianapolis.

    Can you provide any information on the CDFM reception?  The website still says "Information Coming Soon!"  This will probably be my last PDI (retiring next year, 39 years of military/civilian service) and I would like to see how much bigger a room you will need compared to the first reception we had back in 2000 (I was part of the beta test group).  My son, who is also a CDFM, will be at the PDI as well so I sort of see this passing the torch to the next generation.

    Hi Thomas,

    Thanks so much for asking!  Information on our CDFM Reception is below.  We look forward to meeting you and your son and celebrating the Wisener family's wonderful CDFM tradition!

    Best regards,
    LJ Morris

    CDFM Reception

    We love to recognize our CDFMs and CDFM-As! If you are an active or retired CDFM or CDFM-A, please join us Thursday, May 31, from 6-7:30pm at the Hyatt Regency, and allow us the honor of serving you a complimentary drink of your choice, hors d'oeuvres, and a small gift of appreciation.

    Registration is not required but helps us estimate catering needs. To register, log in to the PDI Registration Update site, click on "Register for Special Events", check the box for "CDFM Reception", then click "Save Changes." For assistance before PDI, contact RHQ at (702) 798-8376 or pdiregistration@rhq.com. For onsite assistance, go to Registration or the CDFM Table.

    Many thanks to IBM for supporting our CDFMs by sponsoring this prestigious, invitation-only event!  Attendance is limited to those who have Active or Certified Retired CDFM or CDFM-A certification.  If your certification has lapsed and you would like to be reinstated, contact us at certification@asmconline.org or (703) 549-0360 before PDI, or see us at the CDFM Table onsite at PDI for assistance.

    Those who earn the CDFM at PDI before the Reception takes place are also invited! Come see us at the CDFM Table for assistance with registration. (Candidates expecting to complete the CDFM at PDI should be sure to submit their VFME form before attending PDI, so passing the exams is the last of the requirements.)
