Task Force 21 schedules virtual Triad Symposium
Minot Chamber’s Task Force 21 (TF 21) is preparing to host its ninth annual symposium on the Nuclear Triad Sept. 22. While the Symposium is typically held in Washington DC, this year’s will be virtual due to the pandemic.
TF 21 Chair Mark Jantzer says, “This is a great opportunity for our community — home to two legs of the triad — to stay engaged in the national debate concerning the need for the recapitalization of all three legs of the triad.”
