RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces the Navy and Marine Corps Air Traffic 
Control (ATC) Leadership Continuum to be held in Myrtle Beach, SC from 25-27 
April 2017.  This is an official training event designed for Navy and Marine 
Corps ATC leadership and management.

2.  This forum provides senior air traffic control managers a venue to 
educate and train on Federal Aviation Regulations, Naval Air Training and 
Operating Procedures Standardization, facility management, manpower 
management, technical advances, operational enhancements, unmanned flight 
operations, and policy changes occurring in the ATC profession.  Topics to be 
discussed:  updates to Naval Aviation; special use airspace, to include 
scheduling, encroachment, and authority; Naval Air Systems Command Program
Manager Air update on equipment and budgets; Navy and Marine Corps manning 
and manpower; detailer and monitor briefs; Type Command community updates 
ashore, afloat, and expeditionary; current Federal Aviation Administration 
issues; management of the National Airspace System; and United States 
Navy/United States Marine Corps ATC Roadmap.

3.  Navy and Marine Corps ATC leadership participation from expeditionary 
units, facilities ashore, and afloat is critical in order to effectively 
address Federal Aviation Administration, International Civil Aviation 
Organization, and naval ATC policy and procedures which directly affect 
safety, training, and operational readiness.

4.  Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Defense, and Department of 
the Navy managers who desire to make a presentation should contact CDR Jeff 
Dugard, jeff.dugard(at)navy.mil, (703) 695-8534.

may issue orders for attendance at government expense. Government expense 
should be minimized by limiting attendees to ATC Officers, Leading Chief 
Petty Officers, Staff Non-Commissioned Officers In Charge, civilian ATC 
leadership, and briefers.

Hotel, 2101 N Oak St, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.  Reservations should be made,
