Crosspoint’s annual Leadership Symposium is conducted to provide local community leaders of all types with an opportunity for networking (albeit virtually this year) as well as important information from subject matter experts on a topic that is critical to ensuring the health and strength of San Antonio. Each year, we bring in local and national experts to explain a topical issue and present what is being done to address related needs.
We are proud to have as this year’s theme “Serving Those who Served” as we owe our military veterans a good life upon their return from service. In the 2020 edition of our annual Symposium, we heard from a Veteran who overcame significant personal challenges, from Veterans Felony Treatment Court experts and from CEO Dr. Kevin Downey who provided an overview of Veterans services at Crosspoint. The keynote address was delivered by Lt. General Raymond Scott Dingle, the 45th Surgeon General of the Army, and Commanding General of United States Army Medical Command.
Crosspoint’s Annual Community Restoration Luncheon has been conducted for decades with friends, supporters, partners and other stakeholders gathered to hear of program successes and stories of personal restoration. This event announces Crosspoint’s organizational theme for the year. The 2020 theme is “Serving Those Who Served.” Then the audience is introduced to successful Graduates of the Year, one of whom bravely takes the podium to share the challenges and successes they experienced in their journey toward personal restoration. Each year, a respected community leader is selected to share his or her passion for the Crosspoint mission and the issues related to carrying out our services. The luncheon is concluded by meeting the new board chair and incoming board members.
