The Secretary of the Army and the Chief of Staff of the Army co-hosted the 2015 Army Profession Annual Symposium at West Point, New York, July 26-28, 2015. The APAS theme this year was "Unveiling our Army Ethic and Stewarding our Profession." The commanding general of U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command sponsors the event; facilitated by the Center for the Army Profession and Ethic; and supported by the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Invitees include senior Army leaders, both uniformed and civilian, from all components.
The intent of this symposium was for senior Army leaders to address their strategic stewardship requirement to maintain the Army as a Profession and strengthen its essential characteristics. The symposium allowed for the review of the recently revised edition of Army Doctrine Reference Publication 1 -- The Army Profession, specifically the Army Ethic chapter.
The information and ideas exchanged at this symposium will enable the Army to address institutional and operational opportunities to maintain and strengthen Trust within the Army and with the American people, formulate character-development initiatives, and implement the Army Ethic.
