Message from the CCME President:

Our annual professional development symposium is right around the corner! If you haven't registered or made hotel reservations, I urge you to do it now.

Our keynotes this year include Jason Tuschen, Former U.S. Navy SEAL, CM Chief Jason Torey, Naval Special Warfare Advanced Training Command and Remi Adeleke, former U.S. Navy SEAL. All three are fantastic speakers and you will not want to miss their powerful messages.

Additionally, we will be hearing from Mr. Fred Drummond, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Force Education and Training; Ms. Dawn Bilodeau, Chief, Voluntary Education Programs Department of Defense; William Hubbard, Vice President of Government Affairs, Student Veterans of America; Ms. Hildegard Buan, Chief, Air Force Voluntary Education; Ms. Pamela L. Raymer, Chief Army Continuing Education System; Mr. Daryl Patrick, Career Service Section, Marine Corps Voluntary Education Chief; Mr. Jim Johnson, Education Strategy and Policy Branch, Voluntary Education Service Chief; and Captain Richter Tipton, Chief, FORCECOM Training Division.

As a result of feedback from last year's symposium, we have expanded the concurrent session offerings. There will be over 75 separate presentations for attendees to choose from this year, many offered more than once.

Pack your walking shoes and Step Forward with CCME 2018! This year, CCME will host its second annual Step Forward with CCME challenge walk. More information and registration is available on our website at

I look forward to this exceptional event (and the weather) in San Diego. I hope you see you there!
