WHAT IS VETXPO:
Mission: To bring together like-minded people, families, businesses and provide a way for them to learn from each other and grow with each other through community engagement.
We passionately believe in the power of our response-ability. VetXpo is a means for establishing personally relevant beliefs and courses of action that maintain critical balance and enable veterans to generate thoughtful solutions in alignment with their core values. We do this through the knowledge and inspiration of the veteran community’s most inspired thought leaders, passionate service providers and relevant trend setters. VetXpo is a place to engage with ideas and each other.
Are you a Veteran, caregiver, spouse, service provider? Sign Up, Show Up, Be Present and Experience Change. VetXpo is the right place to make a plan and develop a course of action to maintain critical balance.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
VetXpo seeks to inspire excellence in veterans and our veteran support community by providing locally and nationally-recognized thought leaders, wellness gurus, diverse perspectives and a platform for sharing important messages. These 30-minute TED-style presentations directly correlate to balance in at least one of five functional fitness areas (Physical, Social, Emotional, Spiritual or Professional).
