The CCME Annual Symposium will be held at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter Hotel in San Antonio, Texas, from February 15-18, 2016. San Antonio has a large military presence, with one of the largest concentrations of active duty, reserve and National Guard installations in the country.The symposium theme – “Opening Doors. Advancing Lives. A Military Members and Veterans Pathway to Education and Career Success” – will focus on innovative solutions for enhancing both active duty military and veterans success in their education and post-military careers. We will integrate an education fair and a Hiring our Heroes job fair for the local military, veterans and their families, as well those preparing to leave the military.
The CCME symposium is the largest annual forum of its kind with an approximate attendance of 1,000+ professionals who support educational opportunities for active duty military, veterans and their families, including representatives from higher education colleges / universities and government agencies (i.e., Department of Defense, Education, Veterans Affairs and Labor).
