The Department of Defense Voluntary Education (DoD VolEd) and DANTES hosted the first annual Professional Development Institute (PDI) June 6-8, 2018, at the DoD Executive Management Training Center, Southbridge Hotel and Conference Center, Southbridge, MA. The PDI supported the DoD VolEd Strategic Plan’s focus on enabling a “Viable Voluntary Education Community”. The event was designed to equip installation-level VolEd professionals with the skills to best support the military Services’ efforts to shape, recruit, train, educate and retain a diverse workforce to successfully execute current and future Defense missions. Based on participant feedback, observation, and interactions with attendees, the first PDI was a successful event!  For more details, read the June 2018 issue of the DIB.
