Veteran Focused Events

There are numerous non-profit organizations and/or veteran service organizations providing a variety of services to our returning veterans. It can often be difficult for veterans to either navigate through these resources or find the resource that is right for them. In addition, many organizations are looking to connect with veterans but do not know how or where to engage with them. At AmeriVet Securities, we pride ourselves on being the leader in veteran engagement. We do this by helping connect veterans to the resources available to them, while also helping organizations connect to the veteran community. This engagement ensures the personal and professional success of our transitioning veterans. Below you will find various events AmeriVet staff have dedicated their time and resources to.
