Due to the memorial service for VADM James A. Zimble, MC, USN (Ret.), 30th
Surgeon General of the Navy, being held at Arlington Cemetery on 16 February,
all three of our MSC Director's Quarterly VTC's will be held on Wednesday, 15
February with start times of 0700, 1000, and 1800 EST. If no additional
action is taken, all sites that registered for the 0700 or 1000 start time on
16 February will be moved to the same start time on 15 February.
Registration was supposed to close today (1 February). I have attached a
spreadsheet with the registrations received (with duplicates removed). There
seems to be less registrations than normal, so I ask DFA's and OIC's to review
the spreadsheet to ensure your site has registered, and I ask Specialty
Leaders to please forward this e-mail to your community one last time. All
registrations, VTC or audio, must be made by COB this Friday, 3 February using
the link, https://nmo.med.navy.mil/vtc/Default.aspx. On 6 February a report
will be generated and forwarded to U.S. Army Medical Information Technology
Center (USAMITC), after which no new registrations will be processed.
In addition to updates from RDML Valentin, the Office of the Corps Chief,
detailers, Navy Recruiting Command, and MSC Community Manager, there will be a
presentation on promotion zones and a special report on FY13 MSC duty under
instruction opportunities. Additionally, our quarterly VTC's are a great
opportunity to interact with MSC's from your local area and around the globe.
Please make every effort to promote and participate in these VTC's.
Please do not hesitate to contact me regarding registration or the VTC's.
