Approved For Release=2000/08/29 q~-I ,~;f DP80-0030 Me001000 MEMORANDUM FOR: Deputy Director for Support SUBJECT Senior Seminar 1. This memorandum transmits the full nine-week schedule for the Agency's first Senicr Seminar, a roster of officers selected to attend, a package of materials used at the Senior Seminar Precourse Session on. 31 August, memoranda confirming verbal requests for Messrs. Carl Duckett and to 25X1A speak in the Senior Seminar,, and a request for your approval, in /'./ paragraph 5 , for William Crockett and 25X1A to visit to address the Senior Seminar. 2. The Senior Seminar schedule is reasonably firm, but we 25X1A consider the attached version to be a preliminary effort. Except for a few confirmations in the latter weeks of the course, which we expect to have in hand by the time the course opens, the sub- stance of the Seminar appears to be falling in place satisfactorily. Speakers and panelists who have not yet accepted or been contacted, or other arrangements which are still tentative, are indicated by a question mark (?). 3. We are gratified that you will be addressing the course in Block VII on the subject "The Support Services of the Future." You will probably want to make some formal remarks and we plan to elicit questions from the class which they would like to put to you and pass these to you well in advance of your talk. Block VII, which concludes the Seminar, focuses on the process of managing intelligence and assessing the Agency's current posture and future development. The subject matter is intended to en- courage Seminar officers to think ahead and reflect on how we. can do a better job and help make the Agency a more effective organi- zation. 25X1A 4. The memoranda for Messrs. Duckett and - will formalize their agreement to make presentations, as we have had in-depth discussions with them on the substance of their coverage. Mr. 25X1A will address the class on 20 October on the topic of "The Open Society and Covert Action" during the Block on Covert Action. Mr. Ditckett has agreed to appear twice before the group; he will discuss "The Soviet ABM Program: Intelligence Case Study" in Block II on 1 October, and in Block VII on 19 November he will cover "New Scientific and Technical Intelligence Problems during Approved For Release 2000/08/29 : CIA-RDP80-00308A000100010014-2 pproved For Relse 2000/08/291A`fDP80-00308000100010014-2 25X1A 25X1A IL the Seventies." Once the Senior Seminar schedule is firm and approved, we will send it forward together with copies of the roster of participants for the Executive Director-Comptroller, Deputy Director for Science t, Technology, and the Assistant Deputy Director for Plans. 5. We recommend that yo-,j approve visits by Messrs. Crockett and as gust speakers in the Seminar during the F rst week o P t e course, 19-24 September. We have obtained security approvals on both of these gentlemen.
