College of the Canyons, the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corp. and U.S. Rep. Howard P. “Buck” McKeon (Ret.) will present the Second Annual McKeon Leadership Forum, with a special keynote presentation from Gen. T. Michael Moseley (Ret.), United States Air Force, 18th Chief of Staff.

The forum will be held at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2, 2016 at the Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center, located on the college’s Valencia campus.

“We are honored to host the McKeon Leadership Forum once again,” said COC Chancellor Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook. “College of the Canyons is committed to promoting civic dialog and inspiring community members to get involved with existing issues and the Forum provides the perfect platform to make that possible.”

Before retiring in 2008 from a distinguished military career that spanned four decades, Moseley served as the 18th Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force. As a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, he served as one of the principle military advisers to the President, Secretary of Defense, and the National Security Council.

Moseley’s presentation is titled “A National Security Dialog: What We’re Facing Over the Next Decade.”

“The evening should be of interest to everyone,” said McKeon. “I hope the Forum advances the mission of College of the Canyons, which is to further the education of the people of Santa Clarita.”

Established in 2015, the McKeon Leadership Forum is a speaker series aimed at promoting civic engagement through personal involvement. Thought leaders from the world of politics, government, and military are invited to speak at the Forum in order to engage community members into dialog and inspire them to become involved in current issues. The Forum also highlights the community’s robust economic industries, such as the aerospace sector.

“The McKeon Leadership Forum provides an opportunity for owners and leaders for aerospace and defense companies in the SCV to interact with top officials in the defense industry,” said Holly Schroeder, president and CEO of the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation. “The Santa Clarita Valley’s aerospace and defense cluster continues to grow, and events such as the Forum demonstrate the importance and strength of this industry in the SCV.”

Admission to the McKeon Leadership Forum is free and open to the public. Complimentary parking will be available in Lot 14.
