Registration 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 On-Line February 16-18, 2021
We will have two hours of interactive Alumni Short Talks delivered through Zoom on each of the three days. If you are interested in giving a short talk (20 minutes or less followed by Q & A), please send by November 16 a one-paragraph outline of your topic to Heather Issvoran at firstname.lastname@example.org describing your novel idea, perspective, or approach to an aspect of homeland security.
Alumni Reunion Zoom Sessions
During the week of February 15, we will also be hosting alumni reunion Zoom sessions for ELP and Master’s Degree cohorts celebrating 5, 10, and 15-year reunions. We will reach out to each anniversary cohort to schedule your own reunion Zoom session.
APEX In-Person June 22-25, 2021
To have a better chance of being able to meet in-person, we are planning for APEX in-person sessions in Monterey, June 22-25, 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.
The CHDS Association will again host its Meet & Greet Reception and the always fun Alumni Networking Reception. Agenda and lodging options for June to follow in the spring.
