Strong Community Bonds Help to Enrich and Empower Military Spouses

Strong communities not only provide a network of support for military families, they are essential in creating the environment for military spouses to succeed in their pursuit of the economic dream.

That’s why military communities will be the focus for this year’s Military Spouse Employment Summit.

“Extraordinary momentum is occurring across the landscape of military spouse employment. Over the last year, we’ve witnessed innovative solutions among community stakeholders to connect military spouses with meaningful career opportunities throughout the nation,” said Elizabeth O’Brien, Senior Director for the Military Spouse Program at Hiring Our Heroes. “This summit elevates those solutions on a national stage in our nation’s capital.”

The third annual Military Spouse Employment Summit, sponsored by USAA, will take place on June 20 in Washington, D.C. The half-day event will focus on the ever-changing nature of today’s military community and the importance of creating strong community bonds to help enrich and empower military spouses.

Through a series of presentations and panel discussions, national and local leaders will discuss how economic change is being impacted at the community level. The summit will also recognize military spouses demonstrating strength, leadership, and engagement in their communities.
