AARP California is forming a Veterans Advisory Council to help us build a strategy for serving and working with veterans and organizations across the state. The Council will also review any veteran-related bills in the legislature and make recommendations to the state director on appropriate action. The ideal member will have experience in one or more of the following areas: general veterans’ issues, veterans with disabilities, self-employed veterans, veterans who are caregivers, young/student veterans, etc. This is a VOLUNTEER role. Please see the full description below. To apply or request additional information, please email us at email@example.com.
The AARP California Veterans Advisory Council will share professional insights and knowledge to inform the development of a strategy and provide guidance when working with veteran populations and organizations in California. The Advisory Council will prioritize and review any Veteran-related policies introduced in the California Legislature to recommend action or no action to the State Director who makes the final decisions on state advocacy. The Council will not have governance responsibilities.
Council members will represent identified geographic areas of California and have served in leadership roles in the military, regardless of rate, rank, or assignment. Each member will also have experience in one or more of the following areas: general veterans’ issues, veterans with disabilities, self-employed veterans, veterans who are caregivers, young/student veterans, etc.
The council will be made up of a maximum of 15 people. These individuals will be appointed through an interview process which includes the Staff Project Lead and Volunteer Chair.
