The Marine Executive Association is inviting active, retired, reserve and veteran/former Marines (officer and enlisted) Navy Corpsmen and RPs and their spouses along with Marine-friendly employers to join us for our annual spring social and networking events.
These events are used for networking as well as camaraderie and esprit de corps. There is no cost to Marines or employers to participate in one or all of these events.
All Marines (officer, enlisted, active, reserve, retired, veteran/former) Navy Corpsmen and RPs and their spouses in transition or who may be transitioning in the next 12 months are encouraged to attend and bring resumes. They should also RSVP and post their resume on the MEA website.
Employers and recruiters who wish to support the MEA are encouraged to attend. They should also RSVP and post any employment opportunities on the MEA website. There is no cost to attend, to hire or network during these events. Employers are encouraged to bring any materials such as brochures, corporate info, etc. to be made available to prospective hires.
We can not guarantee a dedicated table for every recruiter but space will be available for such materials.
The venues allow on-the-spot interviews and other networking in a relaxed atmosphere. Our last events have hosted 30-70 Marines at each venue and have all been well received by Marines and employers alike.
Please dress appropriately. Suit and tie is not required, but slacks and collared shirts are appropriate.
