Chargé d’Affaires Kelly Adams-Smith and Lieutenant Colonel Michael Cushwa, Chief of the Office of Defence Cooperation, attended a meeting of 50 Marshall Center Alumni and guests that took place on February 8, 2017 in Prague. The Czech Alumni met to establish the Czech GCMC (George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies) Alumni Association that will build on the foundation of partnership, professionalism, and expertise of more than 200 alumni in the Czech Republic. Key-note presentations on defence and national security in the cyber domain followed opening remarks. One of the goals of the Association is to support the GCMC mission and activities in the Czech Republic and enhance participation of suitable candidates from the Czech security community in the GCMC programs and events.
The GCMC is a unique German-American partnership supporting U. S. and German national security strategies and security cooperation guidance.
