CVEB Appreciation Summit

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.

    Hi Tim- I missed the webcast. Is there an on-demand version or link somewhere that I can access it? I am a professional webcast engineer and was hoping to see some LIVE webcasting from the VA. Glad to see you are working on it. I have been volunteering at the new Orlando VA Hospital in Medical Media. It has a “ Bleeding Edge” Digital TV facility. I am hoping to do some webcasting from here someday. Let me know if I can help you.

    I was not able to participate in the 8 Nov 17 community event. I would like to send an email to Secretary Shulkin concerning an omission in the current rules for Agent Orange/Herbicide exposure for Vietnam era veterans like myself. It appears that some of us (Army Engineers) who actually built out of dense jungles the various camps and roads in Thailand have not been included as ones who were exposed. This needs to be fixed. I spent 2 years in various Engineer units throughout the country doing just as aforementioned. Why would the rules for Army veterans state only those who were MP only guarding the very camps/roads that we Engineers carved out of the jungles before anyone else would have the need to be there. Thank you.
