The mission of Houston Vets in Tech is to support our local veterans by connecting them with the Houston tech ecosystem. We accomplish this by providing tech specific resources, networking, programs, and employment opportunities.
Many veterans find their way into the exciting and growing I.T. sector after their time in service. In addition to the technical skill you can pick up via school or training programs, having a strong professional network is fundamental to securing the job you want and advancing the career you already have. Come out and meet other veterans and their spouses working in the industry and support each other. Hear engaging panels of industry thought leaders, or just network with other vets - this is where you want to be.

Also, don't forget to join LSVA, there's no cost and you'll be part of the largest community of veterans in Houston, Texas.
Our members at our events and online are always trying to accelerate each others careers. Go to our Facebook group to see opportunities being shared for new and accelerated careers. For individuals well established in their profession we also have a group of Veteran Employee Resource Groups that you can connect with to expand the community of veterans within your own company.

With so many monthly events and a small staff we rely on our members in order to operate a consistent and sustainable program schedule. If you have the time and availability to help with tasks at events, admin, database, outreach, or anything else please reach out to us here. One of our group's Community Leaders will get you plugged into our activities.
Interested in joining our volunteer leadership team? It takes three Community Leaders to operate each recurring monthly activity per region. In order to expand access and content we need more Community Leaders. We also are continually recruiting as this volunteer role only lasts 18 months. Will you help us build One Veteran Community?

Our programs are 100% funded by private donations. As an organization we serve our community by recruiting, training, and deploying Community Leaders to build the veteran community. It requires a professional staff to manage the logistics and administration of operating over 15 events each month in Houston. Your support is greatly appreciated.
If your company would like to host a joint networking event with our group we offer group sponsorship opportunities. For more details please contact Kevin Doffing, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our inaugural Vets in Tech event was a huge success, and we're excited to be partnering with the folks at Flatiron School to bring more opportunities to network and learn. Flatiron School is located on the fourth floor of WeWork Downtown - the same building that hosts many of our Bunker Labs events.
This quarter's Vets in Tech event will be a panel discussion that covers how veterans can get started in a career in tech from veterans who are coding bootcamp alumni. Meet other veterans in the field and see what opportunities await. RSVP here, and come join us on Facebook.
