IAVA's 2022 Virtual Fly-In
After the overwhelming success of last year’s Fly-In, IAVA’s premier leadership development program went virtual for the second year in 2022. IAVA’s Virtual Fly-In gives our Members the opportunity to meet with policy makers wherever they are, to share their stories, and to discuss the issues that matter most to post-9/11 veterans.
