March ARB, Calif. - - On Jan. 26, 2019 members from March Air Reserve Base, Calif. received a presentation hosted by the Profession of Arms Center of Excellence on Enhancing Human Capital, instructed by Lt. Col. (Ret.) Kevin Adelsen.

Housed out of Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, PACE began as an Air Force chief of staff’s program in 2014 and has the focus on building military professionalism. PACE has four professionalism goals: inspire a strong commitment to the profession of arms, promote the right mindset to enhance effectiveness and trust, foster relationships that strengthen an environment of trust, and enhance a culture of shared identity, dignity and respect.

PACE offers a series of presentations to include topics such as leadership, trust, and communication.  PACE provides the presentations through their website, along with in-person presentations honored through unit-initiated requests.

As a proponent for the enhancement of leadership skills, Brig. Gen. Matthew J. Burger, 452nd Air Mobility Wing commander, explained during the presentation that PACE presentations offer tools that provide an investment for airmen and leaders of all ranks.

“We want to focus on synchronization,” said Burger regarding the leadership focus of the PACE presentation. “We ignore that human element, but we need to focus on how do we lead and motivate our airmen.”
