Former U.S. Navy SEAL Rear Admiral Scott Moore to Keynote RMEL's 2021 Spring Conference
Having served 30 years as a SEAL leader, retired Rear Admiral Scott Moore is a master in organizational leadership and teambuilding. He served in every leadership position in the SEAL teams, including the former commander of the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, and closed out his career as the number two leader in the entire SEAL organization. He led the military’s elite forces through more than 2,000 of our nation’s most extreme, high-stakes missions and was deployed on SEAL team operations across the globe. He understands the importance of leadership and cohesiveness like few others can, and his experience runs the gamut from leading small groups to large-scale tactical planning. From the mountains of Afghanistan to briefings in the Oval Office, Moore is the man our leaders trusted when failure was not an option. Read Admiral Moore's Full Bio.
Bringing RMEL Member Experiences, Best Practices, Resources & Lessons Learned to You Virtually
We’ve known since March of last year that if we’re going to put on a Virtual Spring Conference it would need to be as robust as possible to best match the productive and customizable experience of the in-person Spring Conference. The Spring Management, Engineering and Operations Conference has been a tradition since RMEL's early beginnings. Known for providing outstanding continuing education and networking opportunities, this conference is a must-participate event. Register yourself or RMEL member companies can sign up for a Group Registration Package for unlimited registrations for your employees!
RMEL Webinars and Workshops This Spring and Summer
Webinar (Complimentary for RMEL Members) – A Roadmap for Continuous Human Performance Improvement
Wednesday, April 28th – 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time
The term Human Performance Improvement is often connected with thoughts and actions aimed at improving the performance and reliability of the people doing the work. Those with experience along these lines understand that improving and sustaining human performance is less about trying to improve or change the human condition than it is about improving the conditions in which people work. This interactive discussion will explore the role of human nature in consequential events, the value of reliable systems and processes, and a roadmap for implementing and sustaining effective human performance improvement programs.

Announcing the 2021 RMEL Foundation Golf Tournament
After taking a COVID-year hiatus, the 2021 RMEL Foundation Golf Tournament will be held June 23rd, 2021, at Arrowhead Golf Club in Littleton, CO! We have sure missed seeing everyone in person, and as we all navigate the vaccination rollout, travel restrictions and all the "next normals,” we want to start getting back to what we do best, in-person networking and education. For those that are able to participate it will be a great time to see some familiar and new faces in an open environment. We will have more details to come on registration, social distancing best practices for the tournament, sponsorships and much more!
I sincerely thank you all again for trusting your RMEL Education Section Committees, RMEL Board, RMEL Foundation Board and staff as we make plans for the future. We are looking forward to seeing you again as soon as possible! Remember to share your topics of interest with your corporate RMEL representative or email us at email@example.com.
