Persistence William Givens, NAVA Board chair said, “We need to continue building NAVA to meet the challenges facing the association next year. NAVA Board members agreed that NAVA needs to continue to evolve. Over the past two years, NAVA has worked on many projects, and with new growth comes new challenges. With that said, Givens promised to bring NAVA Board members together to step up to the plate. He asked serious questions on the changes needed for the association to stay relevant to the veterans communities keeping a strong and viable presence as a public service agency providing services and resources to the people who depend on them.
The NAVA Board is planning to work out their program goals for 2013-2014 focusing on current trends in human services impacting our Native American veterans and community. Mr. Givens emphasized developing a leadership training program for the Board and Post Officers with the help of consultants to improve the strength of the association. He said, “In an environment of tight budgets and fewer resources, elected post officers and appointed Board members need to be well-rounded professionals that can effectively contribute to the daily work and needs of our association”.
The Federal Government has aligned itself through social media technologies to connect with the states, cities, and local agencies to keep the momentum of information and services flowing smoothly to communities on the frontlines. NAVA is building social media technologies and communications via computers and data silos filled with resources and information with instant retrievals. This will make a difference on how the association can integrate their programs and partnerships with other nonprofits and organizations throughout the nation.
NAVA is preparing for autumn and will keep you updated as we venture into new waters.
