You are cordially invited to join us for a special convening of executive leadership from Southern California Grantmakers’ member organizations on the issue of veterans affairs.

This discussion will launch the SCG Leadership ExChange series, designed to bring together small groups of members from across Southern California to discuss a range of topics that impact our work as grantmakers. SCG’s goal for this series is to facilitate candid, action-oriented dialogue about important issues and solutions being sought by your peers. 

In our first conversation, Mr. Ahmanson, President of The Ahmanson Foundation, will share his experiences in the development of the Ahmanson Veteran Scholarship Initiative and discuss how and why the Foundation chose to take a leadership role on this issue, the process undertaken to identify gaps in service, and how the initiative was designed. You will also have an opportunity to hear from three leaders working on the forefront of veterans issues:

• Colonel Anthony M. Henderson, Special Assistant to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the Office of Warrior and Family Support
• Swords to Plowshares Executive Director Michael Blecker
• Veterans affairs expert Michael Dakduk, Executive Director of Student Veterans of America
