Life in a military family is deeply rewarding, but rife with challenges, too.
Today, over 45,000 nonprofits in the U.S. focus on addressing the unique challenges of our community. But there’s room for so many more military influencers to join the social good initiative and help those in need.
So here at MIC, to inspire sustainable, measurable solutions for our community, we created a track for this year’s conference called Social Impact. The track will feature dynamic breakout sessions and networking opportunities revolving around nonprofits and social entrepreneurship, giving you the opportunity to exchange ideas about how to resolve today’s unmet needs of veterans and their families.
We’re so excited to have incredible thought leaders who live and breathe social impact join us for this track. Meet two of them: Antoinette Balta, co-founder and executive director of Veterans Legal Institute, and Chaunte Myers, CEO of Centurion Military Alliance (CMA).
A JAG Officer with the California State Military Reserve, Antoinette has long been passionate about serving homeless and at-risk veterans and service members, and she’s dedicated her career to that end. She co-founded Veterans Legal Institute with the mission of providing free legal assistance to homeless, at-risk, disabled and low-income service members, eradicating barriers to housing, healthcare, education, and employment.
And Chaunte, having grown up in a military family and serving over fifteen years in the Air Force; she’s determined and dedicated to supporting veterans and families in transition. At CMA, she leverages her deep understanding of military culture and experience to provide community-based transition assistance programs, designed to train, prepare, and educate transitioning service members, and veterans.
If you want to meet these visionaries and others and become a catalyst for positive change in the military community, we’d love it if you joined us! Buy your MIC ticket today for access to the Social Impact track and so much more.
