Auxiliary Leadership and Management Course (2018 AUXLAM-B)
AUXLAM-B will be presented during the District Conference at the Crown Plaza Reading, Wyomissing, Pennsylvania on September 7-9, 2018.

Registration is now open to all interested members.

The Auxiliary Leadership and Management Course (AUXLAM) is a leadership and management course for flotilla level elected and staff leaders focused on responsibilities and management skills. It lays the foundation for all leadership skills necessary to successful leadership in the Coast Guard and the Auxiliary. This is a facilitated and interactive course dealing with Self Awareness, Motivation, Strategic Leadership, Team Building, Ethics, Conflict Management and Performance Problem Solving. The AUXLAM course is presented in two parts: A and B. Members may take the A or B course in any sequence.

This fall AUXLAM-B will be presented. There are members who have already completed AUXLAM-A. These members must complete AUXLAM-B in order to be credited with completing the AUXLAM course. All interested members are encouraged to register.

Attendees are expected to arrive on Friday afternoon and depart on Sunday afternoon. AUXLAM has been taught by the National Training Directorate for several years and it has been widely acclaimed by the members that have attended. All members attending this class will receive an AUXLAM-B certificate at the conclusion of the course. Those who have completed both A and B will receive an AUXLAM Certificate of Completion.

Note: AUXLAM is worth 1 credit toward AUXOP certification. We presented the AUXLAM-A course last March 2018. The reviews following the course by those attending were awesome. Do not miss the opportunity to attend such an excellent course and at the same time attend the District Conference. There are a limited number of available seats. Do not delay your registration.

1. Note that only members are eligible to attend a C-School (such as AUXLAM) if Auxiliary Mandatory Training (AUXMT) is completed prior to attendance. AUXMT certification includes the 8 mandatory core courses and 2 FEMA courses ICS 100 and 700. Registration will not be accepted if AUXMT certification is not listed in AUXDATA.
2. All attendees traveling more than 50 miles (home to hotel) will be reimbursed by District 5NR or US Coast Guard funds. All attendees will travel on Orders issued by DIRAUX. All attendees must complete a Form 7059 "Short Term Resident Training Request (STTR)".
