About the Event

The proceeds will provide scholarships for active duty military and veterans, as well as their families, to help reengineer their careers with a focus on the financial services world. The contribution that all of our military have made to our country needs to be rewarded and what better way than to help prepare them academically to build a new life and possible new career. The financial contributions will be provided to academic institutions such as The American College for scholarships to develop knowledge and skills to better prepare each participant for a better and more secure future. The American College is the leading university in the financial service community with programs designed to build knowledge and provide meaningful designations in a multitude of sales, leadership and functional areas. The university also has both Masters and Phd programs for those who are interested in advanced education.

Partnering with the Penn Mutual Center for Veterans Affairs, who has invested in developing a program specifically for The American College, this fundraiser will be a financial services industry event of high profile. The business symposium will be a half day of discussions and presentations by industry leaders with unique perspectives on the relevant issues present in the country and the financial service industry today.

This event will be attended by CEO's and senior leaders in the financial service industry. Unlike any other industry event, participants will have an opportunity to meet individuals in a number of different industries.
