VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System
L.A. Region Community Veteran Engagement Board Adopts Charter
September 27, 2016
For Immediate Release
Provisional Board Now Accepting Applications for Members
“We are seeking members from the community who are willing to make the commitment to serve on the Permanent Board,” said Stephen Peck, CVEB provisional co-chair. “We are looking for a broad array of expertise, and experience with terms of service for two years.”
The provisional board was elected in June and has been working diligently on the Charter that describes activities of the board and how it will meet the needs of the Veteran community in bringing expertise and a devotion of time needed to create a true community forum with the goal of improving services to Veterans.
The board will consider carefully all currently-available Veteran services, and, in communication with the Veteran community, will identify service gaps, and propose solutions to close those gaps, whether in Veteran healthcare or other Veteran services within the greater Los Angeles Region, including Los Angeles County, the Antelope Valley, the counties of Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Ventura and Kern. The mission of the LAR-CVEB also includes active communication regarding the implementation of the Master Plan for VA’s West Los Angeles campus.
You can access the application online at: www.surveymonkey.com/r/7CV8655. Applications are due by close of business Friday, Oct. 28.
“The LAR-CVEB Board’s mission is to be an information-collection and communication hub for Veterans, their families and caregivers to provide information on the multitude of earned benefits available to them,” said Jesse Max Creed, CVEB provisional co-chair. “If you are interested in serving on this board, please fill out an online application – we want to hear from you.”
You can find both the full text of the Charter and the link to the Board Application by visiting the LAR-CVEB Facebook page. The Charter and the Board Application can also be found on VA’s CVEB website: www.losangeles.va.gov/cveb
With your help and participation, the LAR-CVEB will be a strong voice for Veterans in our community. We strive to be your partner in wellness and health.
