Get Educated: Veteran Unemployment
|IAVA'S 2012 MEMBER SURVEY|
As the nation’s first and largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization committed to veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, IAVA has a real‐time understanding of what our member veterans think, believe and experience. Every day we hear from our member veterans on Facebook, Twitter and through Community of Veterans, our confidential online social network exclusively for our Iraq and Afghanistan veteran members. We also conduct an annual member survey to dig deep into the challenges and opportunities of their day-to-day lives. Survey responses directly inform our Policy Agenda and organizational priorities for the coming year, as well as shape our membership activities and partnerships. Our member veterans’ answers also allow us to compare their changing needs from year to year, and help to fill gaps in public knowledge about this new generation of veterans.
2012 findings include:
IAVA is free. We get things done. And with you in our ranks, we can achieve so much more.
You heard that right - IAVA membership is free. 100% free. You already paid your dues in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Second, IAVA gets things done. From uniting our community to being a force on Capitol Hill, IAVA is making things happen.
And we’re the largest community of Iraq and Afghanistan vets in the country. The larger we grow the movement, the stronger we become. And that means we can better reach and deliver services, resources and support to the 2.4 million veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan.

IAVA'S POLICY AGENDA
IAVA's Policy Agenda is the blueprint for IAVA's work in Washington in each year. In prior years, we’ve focused on passing the New GI Bill, securing Advanced Funding for VA healthcare and improving the disability reform process. In the 2012 Policy Agenda, like in 2011, we’re focusing on fighting veteran unemployment.
