Consequence Management Symposium
COL Jeffrey C Reynolds, Prof Bert B Tussing
Issue Paper by the US Army War College, Center for Strategic Leadership
"During a 21-23 August 2001 symposium conducted at the Collins Center of the United States Army War College, a group of 80 subject matter experts examined the evolving policy and infrastructure surrounding Consequence Management. Viewing the issue within the larger construct of Territorial Security, participants concentrated on both inter-agency and intergovernmental issues associated with this national challenge. In six panels, over two days’ time, state, local and federal officials addressed on-going initiatives and remaining shortfalls in this arena. Discussions encompassed inter agency coordination; state, local and federal cooperation; and the proper utilization of both active and reserve components of the military. Parallel issues faced by the Regional CINC’s, the State Department and their host nation counter parts were also a key part of the symposium."
