History of CCME

The Council of College and Military Educators (CCME) had its beginning in California. A group of Education Services Officers (ESO’s) gathered in the early 1970’s to exchange ideas on how to best serve the needs of military personnel who desired a college education. From this early beginning it was decided that they would meet annually in February. They further decided that educational institutions providing education for the military, both on and off base, should be invited to send a representative to the symposiums. It was in 1973 when the first annual symposium of the California Community Colleges and Military Educators Association (CCCMEA) met with John Harmes as the group’s chairman. At the annual symposium in San Francisco in 1994, the organization was renamed Council of College and Military Educators (CCME) to more accurately reflect the membership and its role in military education. The CCME has now become world-wide in scope.
