6/7/17 Update
The NDVBC and VCR representatives attended the event as scheduled.  The VA marketed the event as a Veterans Career and Resource Fair.
But when we entered, this is what we saw…

In any event, we had the opportunity to meet a wide variety of Veterans, and some non-Veterans decided to show up too.

We met several SDVOSB’s that expressed their disdain of the procurement disparity at the Federal, State and Local governments towards Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses.

This is why the NDVBC continues to advocate for Veterans in Business!
