Established in 2018, AMCL’s vision is to be an active, influential, and innovative professional organization that serves the Marine Corps logistics and combat service support community by fostering mentorship, networking, and professional education; and to serve as a hub of interaction and collaboration to share ideas with Department of Defense (DoD), industry, small business and academic professionals. To further support those individuals who inspire and emulate this vision throughout the Marine Corps, AMCL established an AMCL Awards Program in 2023. 


The AMCL awards program recognizes exceptional members within the Marine Corps community who embody the mission and vision of AMCL. This program serves to provide opportunities across the Marine Corps to highlight critical thinkers who strive to leverage innovation, best business practices, and emerging technologies in order to address  current and future logistics challenges. 


We encourage submissions in line with each awards category.

The rank/grades should be a reference point and are included as a guideline, but should not be viewed as a barrier. 

We encourage and will consider all quality submissions.

2024 Awardees will be invited to receive their award during the AMCL Symposium scheduled for 6-8 August 2024 in Newport News, Virginia.
