FORT BELVOIR, Va. – The U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) held its 2022 Spring Senior Leaders’ Conference at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, May 3-5.
Maj. Gen. Michele Bredenkamp, commanding general, INSCOM, and Command Sgt. Maj. William Rinehart, command sergeant major, INSCOM, hosted the forum for INSCOM staff, major subordinate command (MSC) commanders, command sergeants major, command chief warrant officers, senior civilians and Army intelligence enterprise leaders to meet and discuss command priorities, missions, and initiatives.
The three day conference was intended to create a common operational picture for INSCOM’s global force, with a theme of “INSCOM: The Global Integrator of Army Intelligence.”
Bredenkamp opened the conference by thanking the attendees for coming together to discuss issues of importance for current and future leaders.
“It’s great to pull the family together,” said Bredenkamp. “We have three days of greatness planned as we talk about how we are taking care of our people, ensuring operational readiness and setting the conditions for Army modernization.”
The conference discussed specific topics, tailored for each day, highlighting people, operational readiness and modernization.
Attendees were able to meet with Army Senior Leaders and former INSCOM commanding generals, and discuss current events and emerging topics, with an eye on the future.
Rinehart spoke on the value and opportunity for having senior leaders from across the command participate in the conference.
“The opportunity gained by bringing these teams together after such a long, unprecedented, two year isolation period cannot be overstated,” said Rinehart. “The conversation, personal engagements, and sharing of ideas cannot be exactly replicated virtually and is so important, especially in these times.”
Leaders participated in command wellness presentations and Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) implementation and demonstration events to better support their Soldiers, Civilians, contractors and families.
Bredenkamp also unveiled INSCOM’s new command video to the assembled audience in advance of it going live on the command website.
Bredenkamp and Rinehart closed out the conference by thanking the assembled leaders for their hard work and dedication towards the mission and their workforce.
“INSCOM is better because of you,” said Rinehart. “I appreciate what you do for the Soldiers, Civilians, contractors and their families on a daily basis.”
