Joint Civilian Orientation Conference Hosted by U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis

Earlier this month Jo Ann Ross, President and Chief Advertising Revenue Officer, CBS Corporation, attended the Joint Civilian Orientation Conference (JCOC), the oldest and most prestigious public liaison program in the Department of Defense, hosted by U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis. As a JCOC participant, Ross began the program at the Pentagon, then spent several intense days at undisclosed locations, engaging with senior military officials and the troops. In addition to participating in tactical training exercises, she gained a special understanding of the roles and mission of the U.S. Armed Forces, as well as their skills, capabilities and the equipment employed in defense of our nation.

“We are thrilled that Jo Ann received this great honor of being selected as a JCOC participant and that she represented CBS Corporation and the CBS Veterans Network as she experienced a small daily portion of the military’s global mission,” said Richard M. Jones, Executive Vice President and Chief Veteran Officer, CBS Corporation.
