We’re thrilled we were able to once again celebrate our military spouses during the Military Spouse Town Hall. It continues to be the perfect forum for showcasing this group’s accomplishments, and to introduce new tools to empower these men and women.

Resiliency, civilian careers and educational opportunities, as well as family resources and advocating for the greater military community, were all a central theme during the Military Spouse Town Hall on Thursday, May 11. The event, called “Empowering YOU,” was led by Military Spouse Magazine in conjunction with title sponsor Allstate Insurance Company and held at the Army Navy Club in Washington, DC.

Boasting an agenda addressing issues important to the country’s 1.1 million military spouses and their families, the Military Spouse Town Hall was held the day before the 2017 Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year® Awards Luncheon and national Military Spouse Appreciation Day. Breakout sessions provided time for in-depth discussion on topics like presenting ideas and your personal brand to decision makers; how Military Spouse Friendly Employers® and leading companies support military spouse employees; and learning how to focus inward to develop one’s best self to positively affect others.

“We’re thrilled we were able to once again celebrate our military spouses during the Military Spouse Town Hall. It continues to be the perfect forum for showcasing this group’s accomplishments, and to introduce new tools to empower these men and women in their own families, on their military bases, in their communities and across the nation,” said Suzie Schwartz, President of Military Spouse Programs. “And, the Town Hall gave them an opportunity to connect with businesses ranging from our corporate sponsors to start-up spouse entrepreneurs, higher education admissions officers, government officials and each other.”

The 2017 Military Spouse Town Hall's sponsors included: Allstate (Title Sponsor); Capital One, Starbucks and The Home Depot (Gold Sponsors;) and Combined Insurance, Hilton, Medcerts and Verizon (Silver Sponsors).
