Career Communications Group (CCG) has announced that STEM City USA will host the National Naval Officers Association (NNOA) Leadership, Professional Development & Training Symposium. The virtual event will run from August 17-20, with a kickoff event on August 16 on CCG’s secure conference portal.
STEM City USA is the first of its kind online community for the general public, STEM professionals, and students to network and find resources that will help them advance their careers. As we continue to adjust to a new way of life, people are finding ways to stay connected. CCG is proud to partner with the heroes in the Sea Services to create a space to cultivate growth and development.
“STEM City will revolutionize how the STEM community interacts and we are delighted to partner with the NNOA to showcase the incredible things this online community can accomplish,” said Tyrone Taborn, CEO of Career Communications Group, in a statement.
The National Naval Officers Association (NNOA) is a familiar presence at CCG events like the BEYA STEM Conference. In 2019, Coast Guard Officer Trainee Camarie Rogers received the Student Leadership Award for promoting diversity and inspiring others to join the NNOA. In addition, she was voted Professional Military Education coordinator for the Tidewater chapter.
Event speakers will include Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Karl Schultz, who was featured in a recent Veterans edition of US Black Engineer magazine (photo inset), Vice Commandant Adm. Linda L. Fagan, and Navy Inspector General Vice Adm. John Fuller.
Since 2010, NNOA Tidewater has awarded hundreds of thousands in scholarship awards, including the Vice Admiral Samuel Gravely scholarship, named after the first Black officer to command a U.S. Navy warship. In addition, NNOA supports the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard in developing young Americans pursuing undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
