The Texas Veterans Commission would like to invite you to attend the 15th Annual Veterans Summit, which will be held from February 11-13, 2013. This year, we are pleased to partner with the City of Austin to hold the Summit at the Palmer Events Center at 900 Barton Springs Road, Austin, Texas.

  • Training for non-profit organizations and
    Veterans Service Organizations that provide services to Texas Veterans
    and their families that will feature two workshops: (1) Planning for
    Program Evaluation and Grant Reporting; and (2) Understanding Strategic
    Alliances: A Continuum.


  • A Women Veterans “Get-to-Work” Seminar
    & Workshop from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. that will focus on personal

    series of general session events including a panel featuring members of
    the Fully Developed Claims Initiative and the State Strike Force Teams
    authorized by Governor Rick Perry, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst
    and Speaker Joe Straus that are helping Texas Veterans with disability
    claims currently pending in the backlog of claims at U.S. Department of
    Veterans Affairs; and industry employer panel; a panel on Veteran

    media.


  • At 1:00 pm, the Veterans Expo opens,
    which will continue on through the next day. The Veterans Expo will
    include state, local, and federal government agencies, Veterans’
    organizations, not-for-profit organizations, schools and companies that
    provide Veteran-specific services which assist Veterans and their
    families.

will feature Claims, Employment, and Education Clinics where staff from
the Texas Veterans Commission will be available to provide direct,
one-on-one assistance to Veterans.






There is no cost to attend the Summit, but you do need to register online to attend at www.tvc.texas.gov/summit.aspx. You can also request a table for the Expo when you register. All registrations are requested no later than February 4, 2013.





If your attendance at the Summit will
require a hotel stay, the Radisson Hotel and Suites Austin – Downtown
has set aside a block of rooms at a rate of $108 per night. There is a
link to make a reservation on the Summit registration page or you can
call the hotel directly at (512) 478-9611 and identify yourself as part
of the “Texas Veterans Commission Summit.” The deadline for reservations
is January 21, 2013, at 5:00 p.m.






We hope
that your schedule will allow you to join us. We also hope that you
will tell others who serve Veterans and their families about the Summit
and encourage them to attend as there is much to be gained from our
collective work and experience.
