Watch Live: Military Service Initiative Summit
February 18, 2015

On February 18th, the George W. Bush Institute at the Bush Center will host its second national Summit in support of post-9/11 veterans and military families. Leaders from the public and private sectors will examine how to empower communities, non-profit organizations, business and philanthropy to more effectively serve our transitioning warriors and their families.

During the Summit, the George W. Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative will release new research and functional tools that will enable funders to make more informed investment decisions, and veteran and military serving non-profits to better provide services and enduring outcomes for a successful transition. The new research builds upon research released last year by the Military Service Initiative’s work that examined the military-civilian divide and identified areas of effort to empower veterans and their families during and after transition. 

The Summit will include a conversation with President George W. Bush. Panel discussions will focus on what a successful veteran transition looks like and how funders, non-profits, and communities play an effective role in delivering resources.
