In addition to 23 workshops, attendees heard from a number of keynote speakers, including Second Lady of the United States Karen Pence, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Medal of Honor recipient Captain Florent Groberg and wheelchair basketball athlete Shaun Castle. Mark your calendars for next year’s conference, which will be August 12-14, 2020, in Washington DC.
"The NASWA 2019 Veterans Conference was amazing! Microsoft was proud to sponsor our keynote speaker and Medal of Honor recipient US Army Captain Flo Groberg. The panel on our MSSA program was very informative and interactive, and the three-session track on Native American veteran issues was the first I’ve seen at any veterans’ conference. What a great week!"
"Another successful NASWA Veterans Conference. More than 500 in attendance representing 49 states, serving those who served!"
"I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything, I brought 10 staff with me for the first time and they are completely blown away. Kudos NASWA for such a wonderful event!"
"Thank you for all of your work. I had a great time, made some good contacts, and feel like I’m beginning to build a network to do a lot more good for veterans and the people that take care of them."
"What a wonderful conference! I've been to many over the years and have to say, this was at the TOP. I was perhaps way too excited about the focus on military spouses - and wanted to talk to all your speakers!"
"Attended the 2019 NASWA Veterans Conference. These are amazing people on a mission to help Veterans find employment and services, so they receive the help that they need."
"It was a great event that allowed us to connect with state leaders, in the interest of sharing insights, best practices, and addressing issues that we are all committed to solving."
