Lt Bob Roberts (like the movie!) from Greenville, SC has created the first of what promises to be several online AE lessons for folks to use.

He's working on his production value and such, but this is a great start!

Awesome! Now can this be distributed via official channels?

NIN

Why do you need it distributed via official channels? Just use it.

We are going to use it. Some folks do not have access to this board. (My former Wing COS told me that this board is "evil" and refused to even acknowledge that it exists.)

Why NOT distribute this through channels?

My AE people were given the link earlier today. They're working it thru their channels to the squadron AEOs for immediate use. There's nothing stopping you.

Now, should NHQ? Maybe. I'm not in the AE shop at NHQ and I will not speak for Dr. Montgomery and his team. Perhaps they're vetting this gentleman's content or putting it in with other "Best Practices" to be distributed as part of an overall strategy.  I don't know, and probably won't know until that happens.

But for now, hey, its there. Make use of it now, or wait until you get it via channels. Whatever.

I'm fairly certain that the Lt who is spearheading this is trying to do just that. But he's a local AEO, and not a NHQ level person..

If you want to use it, GREAT.
If not, might want to start coming up with some stuff to do locally. I know that'sd what we're trying to get done in my Group.

This is a massive endeavor, and I don't know about you, but my team members and I are ALL full time, and trying to navigate that, plus coordinating who is working from home, plus figuring out how to transform an in person activity to an online only thing. This is going to take a hot sec.

Have a little patience, and share with us what you come up with!

This is awesome! (seriously)

I'll be pointing people to this video and I'm looking forward to seeing more.
