                                          Director’s	Message
This edition of Currents highlights some of our past 15 years
of history as an executive education leader in this region.
APCSS has been quite successful as an enabler of leaders
helping to increase capacities for progress and growth in vari-
ous security dimensions at home. We are accomplishing our
mission of helping to educate, connect and empower security
practitioners to advance Asia-Pacific security. We are real-
izing our vision of setting the standard for innovative interna-
tional executive education and leader/organizational develop-
ment to help advance multi-national security cooperation and
capacity building. We are proud of that contribution. We are
proud of our thousands of alumni and what they are accom-
plishing for the common good.

ence regularly to us. A few of those follow:                          Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Ed Smith, U.S. Army
