NDC Journey to 10

2016 Veterans Summit

The purpose of this half-day Summit is to afford an opportunity for veterans, their spouses, company and organization representatives to come together in an educational forum to hear from fellow veterans and professional leaders as well as learn some of the most-effective best practices regarding veteran hiring, transitioning into a civilian workplace along with professional development opportunities. The Summit Agenda will include a featured keynote speaker and two (2) panel discussions: one designed for military and veterans and one designed for employers followed by a summary of the shared best practices relevant to both constituency groups.
