Last call – Publication Update Deadline Extended to July 10: Thanks for all the updates I’ve received so far to the general CMVE informational publication. A reminder to get in touch if you haven’t yet with any institutional updates for a new, streamlined publication planned for print soon (click here to access the old file and see what’s currently on file for your institution). Please respond to me directly (do not just reply to the listserv) with any updates to the following: the logo currently representing your institution on the map; the best website to include for your institution on the back-side listing – you can use the general website or update to a veteran-specific site if you wish; just keep in mind this will be in print verbatim, not hyperlinked; and any updates to the web-based POC listing (remember, this should be the best person on your campus to help a prospective new student veteran with questions, about benefits or otherwise) found here: https://micmve.org/veteran-poc-at-cmve-institutions/
Reminder – CMVE Member Survey Open Until July 19: Your responses to the annual member survey help the CMVE Steering Committee plan for future activities. This year’s brief member survey can be completed online (at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JYGYCW7) and your thoughtful responses before close of business on July 19, 2017 are appreciated!
