Alas, I wasn't able to attend in 2009. What would we call a 2023 version of this event? Despite continued admiration of our assessed weak communications to foreign audiences and tiny financial commitment to PD, we would do well to understand why Congress or successive administrations don't place a priority on USG communications organizations or capabilities. Yes, S-M still 'hangs over' too many of our leader's perceptions of what we can and can't do so continuing education is needed to address that.

I suppose it *might* be called something like "Reputational Security: The Imperative to Reinvest in America’s Strategic Communications Capabilities" but then it would remain pretty high-level. Here's a link for the event with that title that happened last month: https://www.wm.edu/offices/global-research/gri-initiatives/gates-forums/gf1-report-dec-2022.pdf
