The National Conference or Natcon is Student Veterans of America's flagship event every year. The three-day conference brings together a community of military veterans in higher education, supporters, and employers.
Finding A Vision
The 2018 theme "Defining our Future" called on students to embrace their roles as a leader in America by combining traditional roles and redefining the narrative into the future. The Uncle Sam and Rosie the Riveter were modified to reflect a modern look. Uncle Sam wears shades, American dog togs, and "1944" tattoo on his fingers representing the year the original G.I. Bill was enacted.
The Right Elements
The conference guide includes important information for the attendee from the staff listing, partner support, VIP's, and notable events like the Business Plan Competition where students compete in a "Shark Tank" like setting complete with judges. The content was put together in less than two weeks, with round the clock support from staff and remote teams.
