What we're about
The Vetwork PDX ethos is simple. We believe in an organic approach to building a strong community of veterans in Portland. We typically don't bring in any professional speakers or have any facilitated events. There are no fees at our events. We don't ask for anything from our attendees. We don't want our community to feel like a chore, we just want to build meaningful and lasting relationships in an enjoyable setting.
We organize events every month where veterans can come together to have a few drinks and get to know each other. The only formal facilitation that we do at an event is an "around the room" session where each attendee introduces them self, gives a quick summary of their background, and tells the group whether they have any specific reason for attending. The quick "around the room" session helps everyone get to know each other while also facilitating meaningful connections. Whether you are looking to transition to a new career, searching for a support network, or are just wanting to have a few beers with friends you are welcome at a Vetwork PDX event.
