Veterans, agency representatives attend symposium
On June 27, the first Female Veterans Symposium 2013 “Care After Trauma” was held at the Vance-Granville Community College civic center.
Attending this event were 41 female veterans, 10 of whom represented agencies; 41 agency persons representing 17 agencies; and four female non-veteran guests.
Organizers of the symposium were asked about the possibility of a second event for next year. They replied by saying that any future events would depend on numerous factors, such as financial sponsors, the number of agency participants, the number of female veteran participants, available space, the interest generated by participants, the range of outreach that can be accomplished and other logistical considerations.
In turn, several attendees expressed their interest in assisting organizers with planning for future events.
Several individuals agencies, organizations and businesses sponsored or made contributions to the success of the symposium, or otherwise lent their support to this event.
