Since 2008, the SVA National Conference has been the largest annual gathering of service members, veterans, advocates, thought-leaders, stakeholders, and supporters in higher education in the world. Student veterans, higher education professionals, alumni, and advocates will have the opportunity to learn from more than 1,500 of their peers at the beautiful Disneyland® Hotel and Resort.
The theme for this year’s conference is Empowering Tomorrow’s Leaders and attendees should expect to leave feeling inspired by our 4 General Session Speakers, our 5th Annual National Business Plan Competition, the return of the SVA Campus, our 48 breakout sessions and more.
Attendees can build their own unique experience by selecting breakout sessions to attend based off our 6 different tracks. Tracks include: Career Readiness, Chapter Management, Higher Education, Research, Student Success, and SVA.
