Message from the CCME President:
The CCME Board will soon hold its second on-site planning meeting for the 2015 Professional Development Symposium to be held January 26-29 in Anaheim, California. Based upon feedback from last year's event, the Board is finalizing an aggressive value focused agenda for our members.
The theme for the 2015 symposium is "Innovative Pathways to Military Student Success." In addition to the usual timely and topical sessions related to military and veteran education we will focus on innovation that enhances student success and the technology that facilitates that innovation.
This year the board has hit a home run with an amazing combination of keynote and general session speakers, to include Stedman Graham, an American educator, author, businessman, speaker, and partner of media mogul Oprah Winfrey and Mr. Guy D. Gruters, Captain, USAF, Captain, Eastern Air Lines, a POW in North Vietnam. We will continue to hold round table sessions that address "burning issues" in our industry as well as concurrent sessions and panel presentations.
Registration for this exceptional event will open on September 8, 2014. The entire event will be held at the Anaheim Marriott. There are a limited number of rooms available at the conference hotel so be sure to reserve your room early. Don't forget to take advantage of early bird registration pricing which will be available until December 31.
As you make your plans for attending this year's event, please consider actively participating in the event as a sponsor or exhibitor; recruit new members or exhibitor; complete nominations for the board or for one of the many awards available; or submit your proposal to present a concurrent session. Deadlines are quickly approaching; don’t miss this opportunity!
