Governor's Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee (VAAC)

What is the VAAC?

The Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee (VAAC) is a seventeen member committee appointed by the Governor.  Each member is appointed to a term of four years.  Veterans are recommended for appointment to the VAAC by the leadership of nationally recognized Veteran Service Organizations active in Washington State, and two members are appointed as veterans at large.

The VAAC Operates with the motto of No Veteran Forgotten, and serves in an advisory capacity to the Governor and the Director of the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs. 

Town Hall Meetings

VAAC Members divide into small groups and plan Town Hall meetings in locations across the state.

Town Hall meetings 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.

Upcoming VAAC Town Hall Meetings

We have no upcoming meetings scheduled at this time.
