About the Veteran Recruiting Conference

The Veteran Recruiting Conference is an annual conference specifically for large (1,000+ US employees) organizations that are seeking information, advice and resources to help them improve their veteran talent programs.  The conference is produced by The Value Of a Veteran.

This is the premier professional education event for corporate talent acquisition, talent management, diversity professionals and employee resource group leaders with responsibility for veteran recruiting and retention results.  We spend 3 days doing deep dives into topics such as:

  • Program metrics that matter
  • Program budgeting
  • Engaging executive sponsors
  • DoD SkillBridge programs
  • Leveraging tax credits for hiring veterans

2025 will be our 13th annual event.  Our attendees come from mid-to-large companies and have veteran talent programs that range from mature (5+ years) to just starting to build out.  Unlike events that are free for employers to attend, this conference draws companies that are demonstrating a willingness to invest time, people and capital to gain access to this information and these resources.  And, unlike larger HR-related conferences, every attendee of this event is interested in one thing – how to improve recruitment and retention of veterans.

The next conference is February 25-27, 2025.  Location will be announced summer 2024.
