CalVet to Host Women’s Leadership Conference

The California Department of Veterans Affairs will host a Leadership Conference for veterans and veteran stakeholders on October 4th, 2012 in Sacramento at the Double Tree Hotel. The conference, entitled “A Call To Service, A Call to Action” will empower attendees to “move the needle” when working with women veteran issues in their communities.

Workshops will offer information about how to start a business *or* nonprofit organization, how to host a veteran stand down, how to run for political office, and more. The one-day event will begin at 8 a.m. and conclude with dinner, an evening reception and an awards ceremony.

CalVet will present three awards at the conference: Woman Veteran Leader of the Year, Lifetime Achievement Award, and Outstanding Volunteer Award. Individuals who do an outstanding job serving veterans in their community and women veterans who demonstrate exemplary leadership in their communities may be nominated at [email protected].
