Upcoming Governor’s Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee Town Halls

The next two Governor’s VAAC Town Halls will be held in Aberdeen at the Pearsall Building (2109 Sumner Avenue, Aberdeen, WA 98250) on October 19, 2017, and again in Spokane at the Lincoln Center (1316 North Lincoln St., Spokane, WA 99201) on November 16, 2017.

We want to hear from you about Veterans Issues Important to you and your family!
The VAAC serves in an advisory capacity to the Governor and the Director of the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs.  Members divide into small groups and plan Town Hall meetings in locations across the state to serve two purposes:
1) To provide a forum for veterans and their families to learn about the services and resources available in their own communities.
2) To educate VAAC members on issues that are important to veterans and their families across the state so that the VAAC can share this information with the WDVA Director and the Governor.

Meet area leaders and providers to learn about local veterans services and benefits, and hear about veterans issues being debated in the Washington State Legislature.
-Receive information on employment, education and housing benefits.
-Learn about the wide range of benefits available including compensation and pension and military funeral honors.
-Find out about counseling, financial assistance and support for you and your family.
