The Symposium, held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, featured senior military leaders and academic experts from the international security arena. *h/t Stephanie Meisner/Pitchengine Communities* Stephanie Meisner, Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce VP, and Abigail Martin, Chamber's Marketing and Communications Coordinator, were in attendance along with Pete Illoway, Wyoming Wrangler of the Chamber (and candidate for City mayor). F.E. Warren AFB was one of three Missile bases represented at the event. "We are here to stay educated on vital missions and the importance of strategic deterrence to our National security," Meisner stated to Pitchengine Communities. "The Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce has always been the largest advocate focused on doing what we can to support our local military because they are such a large economic contributor not only to Cheyenne and Laramie County but for the state of Wyoming." Meisner stated that the next level of focus being explored for deterrence is both Cyber and Space. Information useful in knowing potential growth areas for military missions and determine areas where the greater Cheyenne community support is needed. *h/t Stephanie Meisner/Pitchengine Communities* ​Notable speakers included: John Freisinger, President of Technology Ventures Corp.; Admiral Cecil D.
