The Board of Directors, Advisory Board, and Executive Staff provide guidance, resources, and oversight. In keeping with our mission to connect veterans to their community, most of our programs are developed and delivered at the local level.
Chapters and Communities deliver consistent, local opportunities for veterans and the community to connect through physical and social activity that include weekly fitness activities, monthly social events, and participation in local races.
A Team Chapter (red flag) is a Community that is delivering our full complement of programs to include referred veteran engagement (small group or 1-on-1) based upon strong relationships with local veteran referral sources.
A chapter consists of critical leadership positions:
Chapter Captain + Overall responsibility for chapter conduct and mission accomplishment + Recruits and manages other staff members + Assists Outreach Directors in establishing and growing key relationships + Maintains consistent communication with national headquarters + Controls chapter expenditures
Veteran Outreach Director + Responsible for increasing veteran involvement in the chapter + Establish relationships with veteran referral sources + Captures and measures impact
Community Outreach Director + Drive community membership and participation + Develops relationships with local businesses and organizations + Responsible for chapter communications • Manage social media – Facebook, Twitter, etc. • Work closely with Veteran Outreach to tell our story
Athletic Director + Maintains contact with all athletes (veteran, non-veteran) + Plans and conducts weekly fitness activities + Coordinates chapter participation in local events • Communicates with chapter members • Works with local race/event directors + Works closely with Social Director to develop events
Social Director + Plans and executes the chapter’s social events + Works closely with Community Outreach to: • Partner with local businesses and organizations • Create cost-effective opportunities + Works closely with Athletic Director to: • Create synergy between fitness and social events • Mobilize the chapter’s membership to participate
Our current chapters are always looking for great volunteers to be a part of the Team. We are also building new chapters across the country.
If you’re interested in volunteering, joining and/or serving in a leadership role, please contact your local chapter or community. If you're interested in learning more about establishing a chapter in your area, please click here.
