Veterans Legislative Symposium

The Nevada Office of Veterans Services (NOVS) will hold its biennial Legislative Symposium at the Las Vegas Hilton. This is the first meeting of the NOVS legislative program, which solicits input and comments from veterans, stakeholders, and veteran advocates in developing the veterans’ legislative agenda for the 2011 Nevada legislative session. All veterans, their family members and advocates, active duty personnel and their families, and Nevada legislators are invited to participate.

The Symposium has four parts: a summary of the accomplishments of the past (2009) session, a review and reassessment of what items were not accomplished during this past session, a presentation of the NOVS goals and priorities based on Agency operations, and the "whiteboard" session, where participants provide issues or ideas for potential legislation for the 2011 session. Participants will vote via paper ballot on the issues they feel are most important. NOVS will also host their Legislative Summit later this year to finalize the plan and provide educational opportunities for veterans to deliver their message to legislators.

Onsite registration is from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m., followed by a complimentary lunch buffet, then general sessions from 1:00 to 4:30. This is a free event, but advance registration is strongly encouraged by signing up online at www.veterans.nv.gov. For more information, please contact Bill DiBenedetto, NOVS Public Affairs, at [email protected] or (702) 533-7423. The 2010 Nevada Veterans Legislative Symposium is made possible with donations to the Nevada Veterans Gift Fund and the Nevada Veterans License Plate Program.
