For the second year in a row, we invite you to our Virtual Conference Center for the 12th Annual Statewide Symposium. This virtual format will give you the opportunity to network, connect and learn from people across the state of Arizona and beyond!
This is the 12th year the Arizona Coalition for Military Families and our planning partners have hosted the Symposium and the focus remains the same…connecting and learning to strengthen how we collectively care for, serve, support, employ, educate and assist the 500,000+ service members, veterans and families that call Arizona home.
- 4 general sessions featuring Arizona leadership and key statewide initiatives.
- 2 half-days of virtual programming focused on increasing knowledge, skills and abilities for serving the military, veteran and family population.
- 24 different breakout session topics across 6 tracks, with an emphasis on discussion and Q & A for every breakout. New this year! Breakouts will include facilitated solutions sessions.
