The Veteran’s Advisory Council was formed in April 2014 to develop a multi-faceted action plan that serves as a guide to moving the industry forward to be an industry of choice to attract and retain military veteran talent.  The Council has embraced the following goals:


  • Develop opportunities for the industry to maintain a sustainable hiring platform for military veterans
  • Showcase innovative and impactful military veteran hiring and retention initiatives within the industry
  • Identify key external partners and outlets to implement and promote the industry’s veteran friendly efforts
  • Promote the industry as a welcoming “best place to work” environment for military veterans
