Feb 2017 GPOI SME Huddle Monterey, California

The US Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI) programme aims to build the peacekeeping capacity in UN Troop Contributing Countries.  The Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) gathered in Monterey at the Naval Post Graduate School to work on updating courses for the next training year and adopt a new scenario for our exercises.

Would love to say that the weather was warm and sunny – alas not the case. But some excellent social suppers.
