What we're about

The VBC vision is a monthly rotation of gatherings with fellow active, retired, and reserve veterans at different brewery locations across Phoenix in a relaxed environment. The VBC purpose is three-fold: first, assist transitioning service members through networking, discussions of important events, introductions to industries across the region, and ensuring service members are personally introduced to leaders in aforementioned groups. The VBC believes by supporting, vetting, and assisting noteworthy organizations that legitimately help veterans this will also help the entire Phoenix community. Second, translate our military service to community service, ensuring we continue our leadership into non-profit, volunteer, and civil service organizations. Lastly, continue our sense of camaraderie, thus safeguarding the bonds established during our military service, and ensuring there is a safety net of resources for veterans. VBC will continue to interface with senior veterans and business leaders in the community, and leverage their passion for assisting fellow veterans.

Group rules
Who We Are:

“We are beer aficionados and servant leaders with a networking problem”

The culture VBC seeks is a relaxed, informal veteran-networking environment

Provide a venue for honest dialogue, feedback, and endorsement of those organizations who truly follow through on their promise to “help or hire” veterans

Serve transitioning veterans by providing and endorsing quality upcoming events; and those to avoid

Each member will strive to bring in additional veterans; and VBC will selectively invite influential community and corporate leaders to discuss what they need and what they know veterans need to do for a successful transition

Measure success by individual transition successes (i.e. interviews)

Maintain an open LinkedIn page to disseminate important information

Guarantee a strict policy of ensuring our membership is not publicized, monetized, or used for profit

Who We Are Not:

A bunch of foulmouthed alcoholics who need an excuse to get “hammered”

A “look at me” networking organization

A forum for hiring agencies to elbow in and make it uncomfortable for transitioning veterans

Typical Gathering “Agenda”:

Get a beer

Take a pic

Make a toast

Network

Refill your glass with your favorite beer
