Current Strategy Forum Postponed

In considering the best interest of the Naval War College after the abrupt leadership change, we have decided to postpone the Current Strategy Forum. We regret any inconvenience this might have caused.

Current Strategy Forum: "The Agile Navy: Maximizing Maritime Power in the Information Age"

Adm. John Richardson, chief of naval operations, delivers a keynote address during the 69th annual Current Strategy Forum held at U.S. Naval War College (NWC).

About Current Strategy Forum

This year marks the 70th annual CSF at the U.S. Naval War College. The first CSF was held on May 9, 1949 under the title “Round Table Talks.” This initial event offered an opportunity for the nation’s public servants, scholars and senior military officers to join the college faculty and students to discuss the future strategy of the United States. Over the years, CSF has expanded to include a cross section of America’s civilian and military leadership to encourage a wide-ranging debate on national and international security.
