The Committee provides a forum for state Veteran program leaders to discuss policy and procedure, share promising practices, and hear about pending legislation. The U.S. Department of Labor Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS) considers the NASWA Veterans Affairs Committee a primary partner in developing policy and procedures for the DVOP and LVER programs.
