Joint Base to host inaugural virtual town hall
November 12, 2013
JOINT BASE MYER-HENDERSON HALL, Va. - Joint Force Headquarters-National Capital Region and the Military District of Washington Commanding General Maj. Gen. Jeffrey S. Buchanan and Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall Commander Col. Fern O. Sumpter will co-host the first ever virtual town hall for the joint base Nov. 21 from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The virtual town hall will be hosted as an event on the JBM-HH official Facebook page, www.facebook.com/jbmhh.
The goal of the virtual town hall is to provide relevant and timely information to the JBM-HH community through a virtual format and allow remote participation.
"We understand it is sometimes hard to attend joint base town halls given the demands of working and living within the National Capital Region," said Sumpter. "This virtual town hall will allow our customers and workforce to ask questions of the command from wherever they're located."
Service members, family members, JBM-HH employees, retirees and the rest of the JBM-HH community are encouraged to take part in the hour-long virtual town hall by joining the Facebook event. Participants can log onto Facebook and find the dedicated event pinned to the top of the JBM-HH page.
Participants in the virtual town hall do not need to have a Facebook account to view www.facebook.com/jbmhh and the event; however, they must be logged into an account if they wish to ask questions.
To better facilitate the event and make it easier to follow along, virtual town hall attendees are asked to post questions only in the events page rather than on the main JBM-HH Facebook page. This will allow users to see what topics and questions have already been asked during the event and ensure speedy responses from the command staff representatives.
