Coast Guard Auxiliary national training meeting scheduled
ST. LOUIS – The Coast Guard Auxiliary national training meeting (N-TRAIN) is scheduled for January 22-29, 2012 at the Sheraton Westport Lakeside Chalet Hotel. This year’s theme will continue the “Dependability, Integrity, Diversity” – watchwords of Auxiliary National Commodore James E. Vass, Jr.
N-TRAIN is held annually near the end of January in St. Louis. The event is hosted by the Coast Guard Auxiliary Association, Inc., a non-profit organization focused on providing education, training and other program support to Auxiliary volunteers. N-TRAIN offers a variety of training opportunities for selected district staff officers and national leadership.
“Each year, we invite a select group of Auxiliary personnel to attend N-TRAIN for additional training,” said Ernie Davenport, National Meeting Administrator for the Coast Guard Auxiliary. “N-TRAIN provides an excellent forum for advanced training and discussion in targeted program areas.”
