Why Join NAVPA?

NAVPA has several ways in which it can help you develop and maintain your efforts to serve veterans as well as represent your interests and those of the veterans you serve.

NAVPA is an established and recognized organization. As such, it has direct contact with and input to the U.S. Department of Education, the Department of Veterans Affairs Central Office, American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admission Officers, American Association of Community and Junior Colleges, the House and Senate Veterans Affairs Committees, and other professional organizations.

NAVPA provides testimony at congressional hearings, monitors and provides input to lawmakers and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) on matters that relate to veteran’s educational benefits.

NAVPA sponsors an annual conference which offers workshops and seminars of special interest to veterans’ programs personnel. Our agenda provides time for questions and answers after presentations. This conference also allows your voice to be heard and provides you with an opportunity to interact with hundreds of veterans’ program coordinators around the country. NAVPA helps you to develop professionally and to gain valuable knowledge for use in your professional position.


How am I Represented?

NAVPA is governed by a Board of Directors elected yearly at the Annual Conference. The board consists of three representatives and one alternate from each of eight regions plus five members-at-large and one alternate-at-large
