An Important Event on Veterans Hiring: A Training Program for Employers

As you know, the Coalition for Government (the Coalition) is committed to supporting Veterans transitioning to the civilian workforce.  Over the last four years our charity golf tournament, the Joseph P. Caggiano Memorial Golf Tournament, has raised over $75,000 to support veteran’s organizations and to begin funding the Coalition for Government Procurement Endowed Scholarship at the George Washington University (GWU) to support eligible veterans seeking a law or master’s degree in U.S. Government Procurement.

To further expand our outreach and support for veterans, on February 12th the Coalition and Booz Allen Hamilton will host a morning forum, “Veterans Hiring: A Training Program for Employers.”  This forum will bring together key veteran’s support programs from across the Department of Defense, including the U.S. Marine Crops Wounded Warrior Regiment and Navy Safe Harbor on our government panel.  Our Keynote Speaker is Commissioner John Newby, Virginia Department of Veterans Services who will provide his insights, experiences and initiatives supporting veteran’s transition to the civilian workforce.    In addition to the government panel, the forum includes an industry panel that will share best practices for hiring, supporting, and developing veterans in the workforce.  Thank you to Booz Allen Hamilton, Northrop Grumman, L-3 and CGI Federal for participating on this “best practices” panel.

The forum will include networking breaks that foster exchange between government and industry.  In addition, the Coalition has invited several veterans organizations to participate in the networking event to share information about their efforts and how we can support them.  The invited veterans organizations include Easter Seals, Operation Second Chance, and Hope for the Warriors.  The full agenda for the forum can be found here.

In the coming days Coalition staff will reach out to our members seeking your strong attendance and participation at this important event.  In the meantime, please share the agenda with your respective Veterans Hiring Offices!  We look forward to seeing you there!

Supporting our veterans is good business—more importantly it is the right thing to do for those who have given so much to keep us safe and defend our freedom.
