FAIRFIELD — Kris Corey, superintendent of the Fairfield-Suisun School District, plans to attend the National Security Forum on May 6-8 at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama.
A total of 110 civilians are invited each year to participate in the forum and talk with senior military and civilian leaders, Corey’s report to school district trustees states. They’ll take up Corey’s out-of-state travel at their Thursday meeting.
“Since Travis Air Force Base is an important part of our community,” the superintendent wrote, “this conference will provide valuable information and insight in fostering relationships between the district and the military base.”
The cost of the trip is $1,165. Guests are lodged on the base for about $50 to $60 a night.
U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Brian Bishop said in a letter to Corey that the forum provides “distinguished, hand-selected civilians” to join the event, first held in 1954.
Trustees meet at 6 p.m. in the school district central office, 2490 Hilborn Road, Board Room No. 108, in Fairfield.
