Comments from past Symposium Attendees:

“I know this is a massive event to pull off every year, but every year, it gets better and better. The breakout sessions were some of the best I have ever attended!”

“The Symposium was well-planned and filled with a great balance of resources. We came away with so many places to turn to if our group needs help.”

“Impressed with the immensity of importance of the mission ACMF has taken on. In a word, [I am] “hopeful” in regards to the plight of our veterans and families and their future, especially in Arizona.

Also, with all of the bad press about predatory, aggressive organizations trying to capitalize on veterans it is good to see and be a part of the work being done here…again, HOPEFUL!”
