JB Charleston Town Hall Meeting invitation

By Col. Robert Lyman, commander Joint Base Charleston

Team Charleston,

I'm excited to announce that we will be hosting several Town Hall meetings in the month of February.  These Town Hall meetings allow us the opportunity to pass along important updates or issues that may concern you and your family as well as give you the opportunity to voice what's important to you.  Our goal is to get the pulse here at JB Charleston by sitting down with you and your family members in an informal setting.  We want to hear kudos and concerns.  

To make our sessions effective and engaging, we have invited Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to represent different agencies here on the base.  Some of the agencies that will be on hand to answer questions include:   Fitness, Child & Youth Programs, School Liaison, Key Spouse/Ombudsman, Finance, TMO and the Medical Group, along with representatives from the Commissary & Exchange.  Our desire is to be able to provide direct responses to questions or concerns, and if we aren't able to do that, the ability to take your concerns back for action.

There are several Town Hall events scheduled, both day and evening, to maximize your ability to join us.   Our day-time sessions are right around the lunch hour -- so feel free to "brown bag-it" that day.   For added convenience and attendance, we are holding sessions at both the Air Base and Naval Weapons Station.   We hope you will consider joining us for one of these sessions:

22 FEBRUARY - AIR BASE:
WHERE:  Forest City Community Center
DAY:  1230-1400 (BYO - Brown Bag Lunch)
EVENING:  1800-1930

25 FEBRUARY  - NAVAL WEAPONS STATION:
WHERE:  Balfour Beatty Community Center
DAY:  1230-1400 (BYO - Brown Bag Lunch)
EVENING:  1800-1930

These town hall meetings are open to all community members of JB Charleston:   Military (Active, Reserve, Retired), Civilians, Spouse/Family.  I look forward to seeing you, and ask you to help us serve you better!   Should you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact our Town Hall POC:   Michelle McMeekin, michelle.mcmeekin.1@us.af.mil or Key Spouse POC:  MSgt Robert Smith,  robert.smith.99@us.af.mil.
