Call for Papers for the 14th Annual Air Force Historical Workshop

The Canadian Forces Aerospace Warfare Centre has issued a call for papers for the 14th Annual Air Force Historical Workshop, to be held on 24-25 September 2008, in Ottawa, Ontario. This year's workshop is titled "Maple Leaf Aloft: The Historical Dimensions of Canadian Air Power Leadership." As the poster notes:
The current security environment brings with it a broad range of challenges for leaders at all rank levels within the Canadian Air Force. Yet, many of these challenges are not new. Throughout our history, both at home and abroad, during peace and in combat, Canadian airmen and airwomen consistently demonstrated their ability to overcome adversity and accomplish their assigned missions both in the air and on the ground. Key to our successes has been air force leadership.

The purpose of this workshop is to explore the historical dimension of Canadian air power leadership in all of its facets. Topics may deal with an individual, command relationships, civil-military interaction, leadership in a coalition, peacetime / wartime leadership requirements, leadership training, etc. Topics need not be limited to flying operations. Individuals interested in presenting a paper should forward a short one or two paragraph proposal to Major Bill March prior to 21 June 2008. Notification of selection will be provided by 30 June 2008.
For further information contact Major Bill March at tel 613-392-2811 ext. 4656, at fax 613-965-2096 or by e-mail at march.wa@forces.gc.ca.
