March 5, 2018

The Defence Reserves Support Council NSW (New England Central North) Committee would like to invite employers and potential employers of Australian Defence Force Reservists to meet with and observe the 12/16th Hunter River Lancers part time soldiers in action.


Exercise Executive Stretch is limited to 15 participants and is a unique opportunity to gain a better understanding of the role of a Reserve soldier, their training and the benefits they can bring to your organisation.


It is a fun and stimulating exercise for employers and stakeholders which focuses on seeing first-hand the range of training and development applied to part time ADF members and the development of personal skills within the Australian Defence Force environment.


Exercise Executive Stretch offers a rare opportunity to view Army Reservists training first hand. Your experience will be on Saturday 17 March, 0730 hours sharp!
