ILLINOIS: All can register (please do) for a virtual/collaboration event with PMML (Pritzker Military Museum & Library) coming up next Tuesday, June 6th1-2pm EDT. It will be promoted in the newsletter and social but we really want to push for viewership numbers. Arlington National Cemetery and PMML are promoting, as well. PMML still has some updates to make to the rsvp landing page, but it is up and running. Our own Cathleen Pearl structured the panel to provide, as best possible, a mix of historical perspective balanced with current recruiting innovations and retention strategies. Should be good.
