Happy 73rd Birthday, United States Air Force! On behalf of our ASMC National Executive Committee and the HQ Staff, we salute our over 4,000 ASMC Air Force members – Military (Active Duty, Air National Guard, Reserve, and Retirees) and USAF Civilians. Since 1947, you have been “doing the impossible every day” as you pursue your mission with excellence and integrity.
As the Air Force Financial Management team continues its mission – to provide resources, financial services and decision support to deliver air, space and cyber capabilities for our nation – know that ASMC is proud to serve with you as we provide community and educational opportunities to help you “aim high” in your professional career and in service to our country.
Once again, Happy Birthday, Air Force from your ASMC colleagues!
“Great!” “Excellent!” “Keep them coming!” This is the kind of feedback ASMC is getting from our members and attendees after taking our virtual webinars and training courses we launched this spring. We are delighted that they have found our educational offerings valuable, and yes – we will keep them coming!
ASMC has expanded our Education calendar to include multiple training opportunities through December. We have scheduled technical webinars as well as webinars on productivity, leadership, and communications. For those who may have missed them, we will be repeating some of our most popular webinars later in 2020.
Additionally, we have five EDFMTC courses planned between September and December as well as CDFM Refresher Courses.
Keep an eye on our website Events column and your email for webinar and course announcements.
ASMC is pleased that hundreds of our members continue to take advantage of the highly regarded mini-courses and workshops in Virtual PDI 2020. Members can earn up to 28.5 CPEs by watching our highly regarded sessions for FREE! Just go to the ASMC website under Virtual PDI and register for PDI 2020.
Don’t forget that staying at home can’t keep you from taking your Certified Defense Financial Manager (CDFM) certification tests as ASMC is offering online testing through Pearson Vue! Please visit our website to learn more about the convenience of taking proctored exams from home or at your workplace.
ASMC would love to hear from you. Let us know what topics you would like to see presented in our webinars or trainings by emailing the Education Team at Education@asmconline.com.
Learn Every Day!
The ASMC Education Team
What a year we’ve been having! Who knew back in March that we would still be social distancing in the dog-days of August! The onset of COVID-19 brought so many new experiences to each and every one of us. Whether it’s working from home, home schooling children, reducing travel or wearing a mask in public places, all of us have to be creative and patient as we navigate this new lifestyle.
Here at ASMC, we are discovering new ways of accomplishing our mission and providing relevant professional training to DoD’s financial management community. Whether working in an office or working from an office at home, our members can take advantage of ASMC’s new low-cost virtual webinars covering technical, leadership and personal development topics. Keep an eye out for our upcoming webinars!
We even brought several of our highly regarded PDI mini-courses and workshops on-line in a Virtual PDI 2020 (V-PDI), free to ASMC members. It may not be Nashville, but it’s an opportunity for members to earn up to 28.5 CPEs at no cost.
For those pursuing their CDFM Certification, ASMC is also providing virtual EDFMTC courses and CDFM Refreshers. We are also thrilled to offer a new delivery method to increase access to the Certified Defense Financial Manager (CDFM) examinations. Online proctored test delivery allows you to take your certification exam securely from your home or office.
Check ASMC’s website to find out more about our educational offerings and CDFM examinations. Let us know how we are doing as well as what you would like to see from ASMC’s Education Department in the future by emailing Education@ASMConline.org.
Enjoy the rest of the summer!
