Air Vice Marshal Brent Espeland AM
It is with great regret that the Directors and Members of the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies – Australia advise their membership of the death of Air Vice Marshal Brent Espeland AM.
Brent had served as the National President of the Royal United Services Institute of Australia from 2013 to 2016 and was a driving force behind much of the reform that had occurred recently at the national level. At the time of his death, he was still serving as President of Royal United Services for Defence and Security Studies of South Australia.
Our members extend their sincere and heartfelt condolences to his wife Judy, children and grandchildren.
His funeral service was held on Tuesday 10 October 2017 in Adelaide.
The Royal United Services Institute of NSW Security Dialogue 2013
The Royal United Services Institute of New South Wales 2013 Security Dialogue held on 26 February 2013 was a great success. 150 members and guests saw the conference opened by Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir CVO, AC, Administrator of the Commonwealth of Australia, then witnessed the insight of those best placed to understand the nations of Oceania and their security needs at the National Maritime Museum theatrette, one of the best such venues in Sydney.
The views expressed were refreshingly frank, and for this an election year, remarkably free of political nuance.
