The Naval Civil Engineer Corps Officers School (CECOS) hosted an inaugural Annual Civil Engineer Corps Architect Community Development Symposium on the CECOS campus in Port Hueneme, California, April 19-21.
 
The symposium, designed by Capt. Pete Maculan, the CECOS commanding officer, provided mentorship to naval civil engineer corps (CEC) officers and increased their knowledge about strategic communication and engineering licensure. 
 
“This was an opportunity for senior architects to address issues within the civil engineer officer community,” stated Maculan. “This inaugural event was a great success.  We met all of our objectives and I’m looking forward to next year’s event." 
 
A portion of the symposium was dedicated to the professional development of junior CEC officers. Junior architects were able to ask senior CEC community members questions about career progression and how they could better help the architect community at their level. On day two of the event,  breakout teams were utilized to help personalize mentoring and share local practices.

The three day symposium was held both in-person and virtually. With the help of the newly created CECOS broadcast team, the event included attendees from around the world, as far away as Djibouti, Africa.

“It was a production that connected our presenters from all over the globe, allowing the exchange of personal real world experiences. This new technology between live streaming and future broadcasting in our newly designed studio is not only a faster vehicle to get information out, but also cost saving for the Navy.” stated Mr. Patrick Shelby, CECOS audiovisual production specialist.

CECOS, located at Naval Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme, California, provides Seabees, civil engineer corps officers, facility engineers and environmental professionals with the necessary skills, knowledge and education to enhance lifelong learning and to provide quality support to the fleet.
