VFW Panel Discusses Student Veteran Engagement:

Ways to engage with student veterans was a topic of discussion for a packed room during the National Programs workshop at the 117th VFW National Convention. Leaders and delegates from nearly every state listened as VFW staffers from both the Kansas City and Washington, D.C., offices highlighted lessons learned and best practices on ways the VFW can interact with chapters of the Student Veterans of America (SVA). With a focus on building relationships, improving communication, and telling the VFW story to those veterans attending college, attendees learned that many of the things we already use for success in our organization are ways that we can help SVA chapters be successful on their own campuses and highlight that the VFW is a great organization to join. For further information on how you can work with your local SVA chapter, contact your Department’s student veteran liaison.
