Douglasville, Georgia – The United States Air Force have announced that Conquer Worldwide’s CEO and Chairman Robert Watkins has been named an Air Mobility Command Civic Leader and will represent the United States’ business interest.
Alongside 30 other corporate and military leaders, Watkins will represent United States in several leadership conferences as a community leader in the position until 2020.
"The Air Mobility Command civic leader program provides an opportunity to explore and exchange ideas, inform communities, and learn about how our operations have an impact worldwide. It is vitally important we have a vibrant civic outreach program. We look forward to Mr. Watkins' participation and continued support of the men and women of the Air Force and Air Mobility Command," said Gen. Carlton D. Everhart II, Air Mobility Command Commander.
As civic leaders serve a three-year term, they will visit numerous AMC installations to gain a full understanding of the unique service AMC provides to the warfighter. Past visits have included visits to some of the most active bases in the Air Force, often including co-located military branches. These visits give AMC civic leaders a chance to not only see the Air Force perspective of global operations, but also learn how the Total Force integrates to accomplish the nation’s military mission.
"The Air Mobility Command civic leader program brings together a diverse group of highly-successful civic leaders committed to supporting our Armed Forces. Those selected represent excellence in their communities and demonstrate a willingness to selflessly commit their time, talents and ideas to their Air Force, our Airmen as well as military families,” added Col. Chris Karns, Director, AMC Public Affairs.
“This is a tremendous honor to be associated with this prestigious program,” said Watkins. “The AMC Civic Leader program is a great opportunity to see some of the astounding leadership from our military first hand and it’s a privilege to be an honorary representative of Georgia and the nation.”
