The Town of North Hempstead Veterans Advisory Committee (VAC)


North Hempstead Town Board re-established the Town's Veterans Advisory Committee (VAC) in June 2014. The VAC spans age, gender, geographic location and ethnicity.

This committee consists of veterans who represent various communities across the Town of North Hempstead, civic leaders that have been advocates for the veteran community and citizens that have expertise in veterans’ affairs. Each member is appointed by the Town Supervisor and serves at the discretion of the Town Supervisor. All positions on the advisory committee are volunteer.

The Town has 2 representatives who serve as liaisons to the VAC. They organize meetings for the VAC, create reports for the Town Board on the VAC's recommendations and the committee assists veterans. The liaisons will coordinate with Project Independence to help the committee in all activities that deal with aging veterans.
