About the Event

The Town Hall began in 2013 as a full day for military spouses from all over the world to network together with some incredibly inspiring military spouses and organizations from around the world. In the past, we’ve heard from the powerful military spouse entrepreneurs behind R. Riveter, the encouraging military spouse career opportunities from Military Friendly companies like Capital One and Starbucks, and the passionate achievements from the Spouses of the Year who are accomplishing greatness on installations around the world.
In 2017, the theme is “Empowering You” and we have an amazing lineup of speakers and activities for you. This year, the event is open to any and all military spouses! Join us at the magnificent Army Navy Country Club on May 11th – we’ll save you a seat (and one for your friend, too!)
