Dear Senior Course Anciens,

We’re looking forward to your arrival here in Rome for the 67th Annual Anciens Conference and Seminar, and for those Anciens unable to join us in person, we hope you’ll participate virtually using the Anciens Portal. We made a short video where Ms. Claudia Vitiello explains the program and the new Commandant, LtGen Olivier Rittimann, (SERC 2) introduces himself.

We will broadcast the Deputy Secretary General’s key note speech, panel presentations, Q&A sessions, and the Annual General Assembly on the Portal. If the technology functions properly, we hope to take questions from Anciens at the College as well as from on-line participants.

I would also like to introduce Mr. Martin Molloy, (SC 136; the soon-to-be-famous “COVID Class”) who agreed to serve as the interim Executive Secretary of the Anciens Association as Captain Helge Tonning, (SC 110) steps down and until Ms. Nancy Vellone, (SC 111), assumes duty after this year’s Seminar.

Finally, we are about to publish the Vox Collegi with the newly structured “Spotlight” section and will send you a link shortly. A hard copy will be provided to Anciens joining the Seminar in Rome.

Until then, stay healthy and safe. See you here in Rome or on the screen!
Best Regards,
(MSC 103-1)
