To show our commitment to community partners, VA developed the Community Veteran Engagement Board. CVEBs as we call it, are combat multipliers. They are grass-roots, collaborative networks working together with one goal in mind – improving the outcomes for Veterans, service members, caregivers and survivors. CVEBs are about getting all the right people who can make a difference in a community at the same table – to work collaboratively, not competitively.
VA modeled CVEBs of off successful community Veteran advocacy groups across the U.S., specifically San Diego’s OneVA Board. Now, there are 132 CVEBs across the country, and that number is growing. These communities are motivated to improve the lives of their Veteran residents.
Join community and national Veteran champions as we show our appreciation to Veteran-Friendly Communities and share their successes for others to learn from.
Please join us as we discuss:
- VA priorities and initiatives
- Partnerships with state and county Veteran directors and commissioners
- StorytellersX Program – Veterans sharing their experiences with their community
- Veteran-friendly community appreciation launch
- Live interaction Q&A
Live from VA Central Office Nov. 8 at 1-3 p.m. EST
To those groups who are already meeting the needs of their communities, VA wants to join you. If you are interested please contact us. VA has the tools and frameworks to help you across the finish line.
