Meaningful Work

BY ALAN GIBSON, CHAIR

The committee is getting started on the programs for the next two years. At our January meeting we set goals and determined the financial needs to accomplish these goals. There was talk about updating the four VVA guides and reprinting them. Also on the drawing board is a trifold to be printed and given to returning soldiers with a list of places to go to find work.

Also on the list of items is our National Leadership Conference presentation on finding meaningful work at a living wage for all veterans. Any questions you have are welcome and may be sent to me by e-mail: agibson@vva.org or fax: 573-814-0348.

We are still looking for workers in the employment and training areas of the committee. You do not have to attend the meetings, since attendance is at no expense to National. You just have to be willing to help your brothers and sisters in dealing with the employment sector of life. Contact your state council presidents, and they will contact me.

Please check out the ETaBO page on VVA’s web site, www.vva.org Feel free to make suggestions about what you would like to see on it. We have to work together in making the site and our organization a viable tool for all veterans.
