We listened to your feedback from our 2016 Spring Summit and are excited to offer even more options for networking and relationship building at our fall conference. We’ve organized a few events for all Summit attendees to enjoy – plan to arrive early and stay through Wednesday night!

Beach Event


Join us Tuesday evening from 6:00-9:00 PM when we’ll head over to the Silver Strand State Beach, just a quick walk from the Loews Coronado Bay Resort. We’ll have food and drink, live music, fire pits, volleyball and games, and so much more! Annual temperatures this time of year are a balmy 74 degrees, but this event will be HOT!

MCAS Miramar

FOD consists of loose objects like rocks and sticks and FOD walks helps to minimize unnecessary damage to the engine of a fighter aircraft. (Air National Guard photo by Staff Sgt.

On Wednesday night, we’ll wrap up the 2016 Fall Summit with a once in a lifetime experience. Join your peers at the MCAS Miramar: an active military base made famous by the movie Top Gun® where memorable scenes were filmed inside the now infamous Officer’s Club! We will arrive at the base by shuttle where we’ll have the opportunity to witness fighter jets practice their touch and go landings, and Marine Corps Officers will guide us to an actual working hanger for a close up view of the Marine Corp’s most technologically advanced equipment. From here it will be time for some “R&R” at the “O Club” where dinner and drinks will be served and good cheer will be shared. Do not miss this unique experience!

RSVP to attend the MCAS Miramar Event is required.
