DoD VolEd Professional Development Institute (PDI)

The Department of Defense Voluntary Education (DoD VolEd) and DANTES hosted the first annual Professional Development Institute (PDI), June 6-8, 2018. 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, the first PDI was a successful event and we look forward to the 2019 PDI. For those interested in helping to make sure that next year's PDI is even better, contact your Service POC to let them know that you would like to serve on the planning committee.


Supporting documents/files, to include speaker presentation slides, have been posted on the DANTES MilSuite site to serve as learning aids and reference tools for all VolEd personnel. It is a CAC enabled site and may require registration for first time users.
