Plans are underway for the 11th annual Veteran Recruiting Conference to be held in-person February 28 – March 2, 2023 in San Antonio, TX.

We are looking for dynamic speakers who are willing to drill down and share the details of specific things their companies are doing particularly well with veteran recruiting and retention.

Conference attendees are talent acquisition and diversity program professionals who are responsible for the veteran recruiting program at their company or who oversee all veteran affairs for their company.  Typical attendees represent company sizes of 5,000+ employees (50% will be 25,000+ employees or larger) with all the typical recruiting & retention challenges of large, national/international employers.

We welcome speaker submissions from Directors of Talent Acquisition and veteran recruitment/retention program managers representing corporations.


– We will only review speaker proposals submitted and formatted using the official speaker proposal form (linked above).  Email/LinkedIn pitches from speakers/PR companies will not be considered.

– We will only consider proposals from corporate speakers using this method. A limited number of sponsored speaking slots have been set aside for vendors and consultants. Please click here to view vendor/consultant options for speaking or exhibiting.

– Corporate speaker proposals are accepted through 5 pm Eastern Friday, Aug 12, 2022.
