Veterans Training Support Center is proud to announce the first-of-its-kind two-day conference for service providers, educators, veterans, and their families. Service providers and educators will gain the knowledge and tools to connect Veterans to resources applicable to them. Veterans and their family members will learn all of the practical information that TAPS (TGPS) did not deliver.


The purpose of the conference is to provide relevant professional development for providers, as well as current resources and processes for Veterans and their families. This conference has unique breakout sessions developed for providers & educators, Veterans & their families, as well as sessions suitable for all. The conference features 15 workshops topics.
