REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- The Bold Ideas campaign is extended until the end of January to compensate for time lost due to technical issues.
Since October, AMC has received more than 200 ideas to help improve the command.
"Thank you to those that have supported the campaign," said John Nerger, Executive Deputy to the Commanding General. "In line with the holiday season; consider giving the gift of a bold idea to AMC."
Participation in the Bold Ideas Campaign will allow submitters to reach directly to headquarters with ideas and identify processes and/or programs that can operate in a more efficient manner.
The campaign is designed to rapidly gather ideas and provide quick recognition for participants.
