Military Spouse Professional Development Program

Keeping a Career on the Move

Please join us for the "Keeping a Career on the Move®" Military Spouse Symposia, presented by The MOAA Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Hiring Our Heroes initiative.

About the Program

The MOAA Military Spouse Professional Development Program "Keeping a Career on the Move®" is a one-day personal and professional development conference designed specifically for military spouses planning to enter or re-enter the workforce or taking the next step in their professional career.

This symposia series is created solely for military souses and focuses on your unique needs and desires to keep a career on the move -- whether that means keeping your career progression in motion, or keeping a career intact from one PCS to the next.

Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with local and national resource specialists and recruiters, as well as attend sessions focused on a variety of topics including:

  • Résumé Development
  • Networking Best Practices
  • LinkedIn Strategies for Military Spouses
  • Employer and military spouses panel discussions, and more!

This event is free and open to all spouses of active duty, reserve, National Guard, retirees, veterans, and surviving military spouses. Servicemembers and veterans are welcome to attend.

Complimentary food, beverages, LinkedIn profile photos, and giveaways are included. Please bring your business cards or copies of your résumé, if available.

Looking Back, Looking Forward

Like so many planned gatherings, our 2020 and 2021 military spouse events were cut short due to the worldwide pandemic. Check out what we were able to accomplish early on in 2020: MOAA Brings 'Keeping a Career on the Move' Spouse Symposium to Japan

However, after nearly two years going virtual, we’re proud to partner with U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes for the following in-person events in 2022 (Check back for dates and locations):

  • Fall 2022: National Capital Region
  • October 2022: Hawaii 

Special thanks to CIGNA Corporate Giving for generously sponsoring these events and their continued support of military families.
