Pre-Summit Training Registration


Our pre-summit training kicked off on September 5, 2018 and continues monthly leading up to the summit on February 26, 2019.

Too often, many attend events ill prepared, not intentionally, but because no one offers pre-summit training to get prepared.

We want you to be procurement ready, connect, learn, secure contracts and create jobs! 

All of our pre-summit training sessions will be held at the venue we will have our 2019 summit. So that all attendees get a sense of the logistics of the summit venue location.

To kick off our pre-summit training is our well know DGS Guest Wayne Gross. Wayne is dedicated and doesn't sugar coat what you need to do to sell to the state of California.

Make sure you sign up for our first of six pre-summit training sessions so that you are PROCUREMENT READY to attend our 2019 summit.

Who we are

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.
