At VETLANTA, December does mean holiday celebrations with family, friends, and coworkers. It also means the final summit of the year for us, our last chance of this decade to make an impact with the veterans, service members, and military families for whom we volunteer to help make a difference in their lives.

Our Q4 summit, the final official gathering of VETLANTA members was on Wednesday, December 11, 2019 at Clay National Guard Center, Hangar 5. The Georgia National Guard was our host and we were fortunate to have as our keynote speaker, Staff Sergeant David S. Bellavia, Medal of Honor Recipient. Networking began at 5:15 p.m., and the program kicked off promptly at 7 p.m. If you were unable to attend, you can find the information on upcoming summits under the events section of our website

To VETLANTA, the end of the year also means it is time to focus on this next decade and what VETLANTA needs to do better in order to support our mission of making Atlanta the premier community in the country for veterans and their families to work and live. Our plans? We will continue to be an unfunded club moving into this new decade, and we plan to engage and grow our network with a stronger focus on collaboration and volunteerism.

The definition of collaboration per reads: the act of working with another or others on a joint project.

The definition of volunteerism per reads: the policy or practice of volunteering one’s time or talents for charitable, educational, or other worthwhile activities, especially in one’s community.
