As you know, PDI 2013 that was scheduled to occur in Denver, Colorado was canceled.
From the ASMC Executive Director, Al Runnels:
As you know, due to the sequester of federal appropriations, I previously announced that the American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC) will not be conducting the National Professional Development Institute (PDI) at the end of May, but that we were in discussions with the Colorado Convention Center and Denver hotels to postpone it to the August timeframe. While postponement could have provided the opportunity for some resolution of sequestration, enabling funding of financial management training considered valuable, at this point there is no expectation that government action to fund only “mission-critical” training will change.
Therefore, the ASMC the 2013 ASMC National PDI is all together canceled. In fairness to the Colorado Convention Center and the Denver hotels, we cannot wait any longer for indications that the circumstances surrounding the current fiscal environment will change positively to permit us to proceed with the PDI.
I appreciate all of your daily efforts in contributing to the effectiveness of defense financial management and I know that prior to sequestration, many of you were looking forward to participation in the ASMC National PDI. The ASMC staff and the National Executive Council are considering development of additional training and professional development opportunities for the near-term benefit of our membership.
