HOH is a nationwide initiative to help veterans, transitioning servicemembers, and military spouses find meaningful employment opportunities. This summit will be the largest, national-level event of this nature hosted by Scott AFB this year. It includes panel discussions about the top five growth industries, as well as keynote addresses by AMC Vice Commander, Maj General Wayne Schatz, and U.S. TRANSCOM’s Chief of Staff, MG David Clarkson. The event concludes with a Hiring and Education Fair featuring more than 90 exhibitors.
July 12 kicks off at 1:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. and includes a Hiring Our Heroes job fair, keynote remarks, industry briefings, and panel discussions with Q&A. The audience focus is employers, commanders, Airmen, spouses and veterans.
