A couple of years ago, I was reading an insurance industry magazine article about an interesting organization that was hiring, training and licensing disabled veterans for placement into insurance agencies. I decided to contact both the Founder and President/CEO, to discuss my possible involvement, as a volunteer. I had retired from my full-time marketing and sales related position and was looking for an organization that was really trying to make a difference, not just spending most of its money on administration and advertising.
When I met the Disabled Veterans Insurance Careers Program founders and staff – www.dvic.us I quickly determined that it was the right organization for me. They made me part of their team as a Strategic Board member, which has been a very rewarding experience for me. The DVIC team works together very closely to achieve the mission to educate, train & create meaningful employment opportunities within the insurance industry for disabled veterans.
Take a few minutes to look at the website listed above and particularly the 4-minute video of the interviews with some of our disabled veterans. You will see how the DVIC program has made a difference in their lives.
