This is Daniel, your friendly neighborhood Portal Manager. Wow, is it almost April? As the days go by, so to do the events. We have concluded IPOC 21-1 and we are in the midst of the Economics and Security Module 21-1. We have also concluded workshops like COVID-19 & Beyond as well as Gray Zone Activities in Great Power Competition, and there is much more to come. These events are a great way to create and reignite relationships and conversations that we must continue to have in the region.
In that effort, I am happy to see APCSSLink and the suite of systems behind it are a major player in the development and conduct of these events, however, it is also a place that our alumni and friends can return to in order to keep our vision alive. Educate, Connect, and Empower!
It wouldn't be a "Message from the Manager" if I didn't remind our alumni that they have access to many assets when they log in. For our international alumni, you have access to MERLN and all alumni have access to our library tools, security focused events calendar, alumni generated articles, and much more. And now, without further ado...
We have a great deal of new content to include podcasts like these:
Take20 podcast - Transshipment and Crime: The Outlaw Ocean Project and the Carrier Vessel Portal
COVID-19 & Beyond and Gray Zone Activities in Great Power Competition presentations are nested in the Workshop tab on our main page.

Daniel K. Inouye Speaker Series - Admiral Philip S. Davidson Commander, U.S. Indo-Pacific Command
In communication theory, it is often said, in order to be an active communcator one must stop "listening, in order to respond". I leave you with a quote:
“Stop leaving and you will arrive. Stop searching and you will see. Stop running away and you will be found.” ― Lao Tzu
