Next CVO Meeting July 19, 2017

The next meeting of CVO will be this Wednesday, July 19th at 7 PM in the Prescription Conference Room on the 2nd Floor of the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center at 820 S Damen Ave in Chicago. Parking will be validated.

The agenda will include feedback from all Member Organizations in attendance on what they need and expect from CVO and the direction of CVO in the future. Further, we will continue our discussion of Veterans Dental Care. There will be a presentation about a program where veterans who dropped out of high school to enlist, can now get their diplomas.

We will have a sheet where attendees will put in their names as well as those of their State Senators and Representatives. The purpose will be to have a list of who is represented by whom, but it will also show who does and does not know who their legislators are.

REMINDER: If you have not already done so, please contact your State Senator and Representative, asking them to sign on as cosponsors for Senate Bill 922 and House Bill 1803, to provide dental care for veterans. In addition, please spread the word to the members of  your organizations, and please tell the members of your organizations to do the same. If these bills die in committee, for a lack of support, we will have only ourselves to blame.

As usual, there will be light refreshments.

See you at the CVO
