Preceded by several events, including the 24th annual Army Ten-Miler, the three-day core of the Annual Meeting offered a wide range of educational forums by the Institute of Land Warfare, presentations on specific subjects and professional development for soldiers and the entire Army family, including retirees, Army civilians, ROTC cadets and noncommissioned officers. Secretary Geren, noting that the 2008 Annual Meeting would be his last as Secretary of the Army, answered his own question: "What should I say in speaking this last time to AUSA?" by listing many important subjects now facing the Army: supporting the global war on terrorism; growing the Army; key modernization programs; Future Combat Systems; modularity; Base Realignment and Closure initiatives; the new energy initiative; biUions of doUars for new construction; new field manuals; and the fiscal year 2010 budget - aU of which, he said, are "criticaUy important to the present and the future of our Army."
