The Marine Corps Executive Forum (MCEF) is one of the Commandant of the Marine Corps’ Strategic Communication efforts executive by Headquarters Marine Corps, Division of Public Affairs (DivPA). The intent of MCEF is to educate and inform influential civilian leaders with little to no exposure to the U.S. Marine Corps, and little knowledge of the Marine Corps’ operational capability, current programs and future initiatives.
MCEF participants include senior executives from a broad cross-section of the business community, as well as community leaders, public opinion leaders, representatives from academia and the news media. MCEF groups are small and each program consists of approximately 15 participants and a staff of 5 Marines. Navstar’s very own President & CEO, Joanna Alexis was invited to be among the elite attending this event!
The group traveled to Quantico, VA and had the opportunity to experience Marine Corps aviation first-hand, fire weapons systems, observe or participate in hands-on demonstrations and tour various locations in and around the Washington D.C. area with a significant Marine Corps history.
MCEF has proven to be a highly successful outreach program that has served to build relationships and strengthen the bond between the Marine Corps and America’s civilian leaders.
Navstar is honored to be invited to this exclusive event and to be among those who protect our country every day!
