Venue: Washington DC
A Workshop For About-To-Retire Or Retired Military And Law Enforcement Officers On "Life After Retirement."
Theme: Business Opportunities In The International Security Industry.
Retirement from the military or law enforcement should not be akin to one being consigned to a life of idleness or non-income earning activity. It is understandable that a retired soldier or police man would choose a simple life of inactivity in retirement and live on a pension, considering all the risks taken during several decades of service. One disadvantage of this approach to retirement has to do with funds inadequacy to live a fully contented retirement life. Inflation and unplanned financial outlays can cause stress and illness. Then the pension paying authorities are not always timely in remitting payments. Not every retired military person or law enforcement officer will face these kinds of challenges, particularly those who invested in business enterprises or landed property while in service. But people in this category are probably in the minority.
This workshop is designed to be an enriching and knowledge packed interactive activity with experts and entrepreneurial retired American military officers. They will lead discussions and related activities on how to earn income in the international security industry either as an entrepreneur or an employee.

A Workshop of NGOS Working In Zones Of Conflict and Natural Disasters In The Developing World
Theme: Creative Strategies In Humanitarian Work: Getting The Most Results For The Resources Allocated.
As conflict has proliferated in many parts of the developing world, so has the need for increased humanitarian programs to care for millions of displaced people. The situation is compounded by natural disasters such as hurricanes, drought and earthquakes. Nations impacted by these tragedies cut across several regions of the developing world: In the Caribbean, earthquake ravaged Haiti typifies a location in the region in severe need of sustained humanitarian assistance. Perennial political crises in Venezuela have resulted in the massive outflow of refugees into neighboring countries in South America. Pakistan and Bangladesh are two South Asian countries
buffeted by severe floods that washed away property and killed thousands. Afghanistan, another South Asian country, was hit recently by an earthquake that killed more than one thousand people. In Africa, a vicious civil war has displaced millions and caused famine. A number of islands in Micronesia have been swept away by rising sea levels caused by climate change, in consequence of which displaced people were relocated to islands on higher ground.
The combination of conflict and natural disasters and the suffering unleashed on human beings necessitate the work of NGOs to provide relief and succor. An effective NGO must plan, resource, implement and evaluate its programs to make sure that its goals and objectives are met, and if not conduct a GAP analysis to do better. It must also constantly innovate to provide better services.
The aim of this workshop is therefore to brainstorm, share experiences of humanitarian work while isolating problems encountered, and developing creative solutions to guide all in the important work ahead.
Who Should Attend: Heads and senior management of NGOs, government
officials, others designated by heads of NGOs.

In 1987, Nigeria spearheaded the formation of the African Petroleum Producers’ Association (APPA) to, among several goals: promote collaboration and cooperation in the oil industry, particularly in expanding markets, and the sharing of expertise in technological developments, human resources and environmental protection. The association changed its name to the African Petroleum Producers Organization (APPO) in 2017. The member countries of the APPA are: Algeria, Angola, Benin, Cameroon, Chad, Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Cote d’Ivoire, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Ghana, Libya, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, South Africa, and Sudan.
Secretariat of the African Petroleum Producers Organization (APPO). The theme of the conference is to enhance synergies among member countries of the APPO. The oil industry is definitely undergoing changes in the context of climate change mitigation efforts and the effects of fossil fuel usage phase-out policies of developed economies on future production levels of oil. Areas of synergies exist right now in Executive Leadership and Management, Innovative Operations Management Applications in the Oil and Gas
Industry, Surmounting Global Challenges in the Oil and Gas Industry, Oil and Gas Supply Chain Management and
Transportation Logistics, and Oil and Gas Business Process Improvement. How to create these synergies for collective
growth while transiting to a world economy less dependent on fossil fuels is the focus of the conference which will feature presentations by participants and a workshop led by a panel of experts and heads of delegations.
Who Should Attend—Oil and Gas business executive managers and Administrators, Government officials and others designated by executive management.
