"Veteran-First"

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

I wanted to provide a brief update on my work as a member of the MyVA Advisory Committee, appointed by U.S. Secretary of Veteran Affairs Bob McDonald (who spoke at RMU's undergraduate commencement ceremony in May) to create a high-performance, customer-focused culture in the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Earlier this month the committee released this statement in anticipation of a report with recommendations to be issued this fall. Our report will address the following areas:

  • Improving the veteran experience
  • Engaging and developing VA employees
  • Creating a culture of transparency and accountability
  • Leveraging innovation and partnership
I'll be sure to share a copy of our complete report when it is released. Stay tuned.
