Crisis Leadership
Lt. Col. Robert J. Darling, U.S .Marine Corps (Ret.)

Join all convention attendees for an insightful, inspirational, patriotic keynote that will instill in each listener the important role each of us plays in supporting America’s defenders.

On Sept. 11, 2001, Lieutenant Colonel Darling was working in the White House Military Office. He initially was tasked to coordinate airlift assets for the president’s evacuation to an undisclosed site, but he was quickly recruited to provide his military expertise, becoming a key liaison and working directly with the National Command Authority in response to the terrorist attacks. Lt. Col. Darling witnessed firsthand the enormity of the crisis leadership decisions that were made on behalf of all Americans on that fateful day.
