Registrations open to CHDS Alumni
The Alumni Professional Exchange (APEX) Continuing Education Workshop provides alumni the opportunity to learn about and reflect on critical homeland security issues from different perspectives while visiting with classmates, expanding networks with professionals from other cohorts, and catching up with instructors.
Time to get your cohort back together, network with alumni from all CHDS programs, and explore with fellow alumni what is new in homeland security. We are excited that we will have several APEX events for CHDS alumni to engage in discussion, collaborate, and network.

APEX 2021 Monterey – June 22-24, 2021
To have a better chance of being able to meet in-person, we are planning for APEX in-person sessions in Monterey, June 22-24, 2021. If everything is open and it is safe, we will hold APEX in the NPS Barbara McNitt Ballroom and other venues with appropriate safety precautions as well as a Zoom broadcast for those who are unable to travel. We will recognize the 20th anniversary of 9/11 as well as critically reflect on the challenges and threats we have seen throughout 2020. Registration for CHDS alumni is open and will remain fluid through June.
Agenda and lodging options for June to follow in the spring.
