Every summer the battle rhythm of the Military Child Education Coalition winds up to frenzied pitch.  That is because every summer the entire MCEC staff is collaborating to make this year’s National Training Seminar the best ever.  As you can imagine, topping ourselves every year takes a massive effort by all involved!


Throughout the year, we are watching for trending topics, experts, and outstanding individuals to round out the offerings of the seminar.  Issues that are impactful and important to military-connected children and their families are addressed.

This year, our NTS occurs July 30th – 31st, in beautiful Washington, D.C. – there’s still time to register! 

Our all-star lineup includes:

  • Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter
  • General Martin E. Dempsey
  • Admiral Harry B. Harris, Jr.
  • Curt Schilling, former Boston Red Sox pitcher  ….and many, many more! 

This unique opportunity allows attendees the opportunity to engage with senior military, policy, corporate, and education leaders.

The 2015 Content Strands will focus on three main concepts:

  1. Character Development
  2. Systems of Support
  3. Academics & Innovations

 To elaborate on each strand there will be collaborative classes, sessions, and lectures by experts in their field of study.  It will be two days full of information and networking.  I promise, you will leave here excited and anxious to implement all you’ve learned.

And if you are interested in earning some Continuing Education hours, we have that, too!  What better way to earn 13.5 Continuing Ed hours than learning about how to best support and advocate for our military children?

Won’t you please join us?  Each year our attendees share that they are grateful for the knowledge and resources they gain.  We’d love to have you join us and to welcome you with our trademark MCEC hospitality!

Best wishes, ~Amy
