22 - 24 June 2012
Consistent with its commitment to today's serving Reservists, the Reserve Officers Association (ROA) announces the Fall 2011 JOPDS program. To date, more than a thousand young officers (O-1 thru O-4) from all services have benefited from the annual Joint Officer Professional Development Seminar (JOPDS). JOPDS is one of the premier professional development opportunities available to our younger officers and is one of the only professional development seminars to emphasize a joint service agenda.
