LV-vets
The VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System and Southern Nevada Veterans Community Engagement Board will co-host a Veterans Hiring Fair and Veterans town hall meeting July 13 at the VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System Medical Center, 6900 North Pecos Road in North Las Vegas.

* The Veterans Hiring Fair runs from noon to 3 p.m. and will include local companies accepting applications on-site from Veterans, active-duty, Guard, Reserve and their spouses for job opportunities and potential on-the-spot hires.

Additionally, in preparation for the Veterans Hiring Fair, the SNVCEB will host a Hiring Preparation Seminar in the VA Medical Center Auditorium from 4:30-6 p.m., July 11.

* The VA Information Fair runs from 4-5 p.m. Special accommodations are being made to have representatives from benefits, billing, enrollment and eligibility, non-VA care, and patient advocacy on hand during this time to attend to Veterans’ individual concerns and needs. Representatives from numerous other VA services will also be on hand during this time.

* The Town Hall runs from 5-6 p.m. and will include updates from Veterans health care and Veterans Benefits leadership on national and local activities and initiatives, followed by a Q&A session where a moderator will ask leaders pre-submitted questions or questions of general interest submitted on a comment card before or during the town hall.

Veterans can submit questions in advance to vhalaspao@va.gov. Questions of a personal nature or those unable to be addressed during the town hall will be sent to the appropriate representative for a direct response back to the submitter.

The meeting is open to the public. As a courtesy to those veterans that do not want to be photographed, a section has been set aside in the back of the Auditorium.
