ARLINGTON, Virginia, January 26, 2007

The Council of College and Military Educators (CCME) hosted its 2007 annual symposium in Monterey, California, from January 22-25, 2007 at the Portola Plaza Hotel. Organizations such DANTES and CLEP and many colleges and universities were present at the symposium.

At the event, keynote speech sessions were delivered by chief personnel from DoD, DANTES, Air Force, Marine, Navy, SOC, and other military or military-related organizations. These sessions provided excellent information for schools and the military on how to make education easier for military active duty personnel and veterans. "The actual sessions had a mixture of ESOs and educators. We all came together with a goal of trying to make the military education industry run smoother for every one involved." Ms. Carley Brubaker, UMT Admission Counselor Team Leader, who led UMT's team at the event, commented.

For the event, UMT focused on informing a large number of people about UMT's programs. Representatives from UMT offered information on its undergraduate, graduate, and professional development programs. Ms. Brubaker noted, "Audiences were especially impressed with UMT's project and acquisition management courses, as well as our PMI accreditation and the partnership with DAU."

The Council of College and Military Educators (CCME) is the only National Organization for professional military educators. It is an outgrowth of the California College and Military Educators Association which was founded in 1972 to promote, encourage, and deliver quality education to all branches of the armed services.1 "It's exciting to represent UMT and able to create a name at one of the countries largest military education symposiums." Ms. Brubaker said passionately about her experience at the symposium, "Not to compare, but being at the same show as University of Phoenix and University of Maryland University College and gaining just as much attention was really amazing."

UMT's Vice President, Dr. C. Eric Kirkland, added, "CCME provides a forum for the military-friendly schools such as UMT to exchange information on our educational benefits and opportunities for the military community. We are excited to participate in this and future symposiums hosted by the CCME."
