18-30: Permanent Executive Secretariat of the Conference of American Armies, Volume III

The purpose of this bulletin is to capture and share the valuable lessons learned in organizing and directing the Permanent Executive Secretariat of the 32nd cycle of the CAA. The U.S. Army had not taken on this responsibility in more than 20 years and very little information remained in the archives from the last time this responsibility was held. This document serves to avoid that problem in the future and will be made available to other armies that may consider volunteering to assume this important mission.
