Service Member Transition Summits

Service Member Transition Summits are local efforts powered by national resources, representing a fundamental shift in the way communities support military hiring.

Each summit connects employers of every size and industry with, on average, more than 1,000 talented veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses on military installations in the U.S. and overseas. Attendees are invited to participate in a series of town hall-style panel discussions, networking receptions, employment workshops, and a Hiring Our Heroes job fair.
