Special Invitation For Women In Military

Women’s Leadership LIVE believes in empowering women to expand their skills and influence as entrepreneurs, executives and professionals, and we believe women with military experience are uniquely positioned for leadership.

Women in military service are invited to attend the next leadership conference at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, Oct. 13-15. The conference fee will be waived as a way of thanking women in military for their service to our country. One of the keynote speakers is Amber Smith, a former U.S. Army Kiowa Warrior helicopter pilot and combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan.

For more information or to register, visit womensleadershiplive.com, and use the promo code FOUNDER (all caps) to attend for free. Military members will need to show their military ID during check-in. For more information, contact Kate Duffy at kate@womensleadershiplive.com

Lost/stolen IDs must be reported

There are new procedures in place for reporting lost or stolen Common Access Cards at Hill Air Force Base.

The cards, used by Team Hill members to enter the base and access computer networks, are controlled documents that contain personal information.

As soon as the discovery is made that a card has been lost or stolen, members must report the issue to the 75th Security Forces Squadron Pass and Identification Office or Emergency Communications Center at 801-777-3056. 

They must then visit the 75th Security Forces Squadron in Building 408 and fill out an Air Force Form 1168, explaining the circumstances surrounding the lost or stolen card. 

The Form 1168 is required before users can have a new card issued by customer service at the Force Support Squadron in Building 430. 

For more information, contact the 75th Force Support Squadron Customer Support at 801-777-1845, option 3.
