NAB and Las Vegas

Las Vegas and The NAB was great!
My wife Cece and I were recently in Las Vegas on a joint venture of The Blue Pyramid  and SWVBRC. Were had been invited to the National Association of Broadcasters convention and had the great fortune of being hosted by one of SWVBRC's wonderful sponsors Platinum Interchange. This allowed us to focus on reaching out to those in the industry who had an interest and ability to sponsor or contribute in any way possible to helping our Veterans live a richer and more rewarding life. We had a very busy 3 days!
We met with others from the SWVBRC, Daniel Booth and his wife were there as was Frances Lowe the SWVBRC Corporate Community organizer. Frances was instrumental in organizing and interfacing with the exhibitors and attendees. The 3 of us, Frances, Daniel and myself were interviewed by Dave Gardy's TV Worldwide and streamed live from the convention floor. Frances and Daniel got to meet with the New Las Vegas learner Steve Sanson, an signed him up on the convention floor!!
Long time supporter of SWVBRC and our good friend Maureen Halpert showed up and was a part of the support network, providing her on air talents conducting interviews and even working as one of our photographers to assist SWVBRC that made the whole trip worthwhile and immensely enjoyable. We have plans to post the video and photos of the trip very soon so stay in touch and watch the great stuff happening for our Veterans. Again we cannot thank Platinum Interchange enough for their generosity in hosting the Learners from the Southwest Veterans Business Resource Center and more importantly in supporting Veterans in achieving a future that reflects their sacrifice and service to country.

DOD Welcome home-small.jpg A welcoming home for our Troops.

Welcoming home our men and women doesn't end after the crowd disperses, it MUST continue on for the life of the Veteran! They've served us, now we will serve them with programs that work so they reintegrate into society.

We are a national public benefit nonprofit organization that educates American Communities about best practices to serve Veterans.  We honor their service by empowering Veterans to apply their training and skills to successfully transition to productive careers and enterprises.

We provide free vocational training 24/7 to all of our members through our website, in addition to local events.  We believe the tenet that American Communities are the ultimate beneficiaries when Veterans claim their benefits and invest in productive endeavors.

The SWVBRC enlists the support of members of local Communities like you to increase Veteran awareness of the value of obtaining a VA card and receiving earned benefits.

Sponsorships, donations, volunteers and support from communities like yours enable us to reach out to Veterans and empower them to transition back into successful, productive enterprises that ultimately benefit all Americans and support future generations.
