LVMAC News — Lehigh Valley Magazine Talks About LVMAC

July 12, 2016

LV Magazine LogoIt is good to see a homegrown association such as ours — one born of true, community need — get some recognition because they rarely do.  LVMAC is an organization which often works behind the scenes.  It does not replace or infringe on other organizations but instead tries to get them to work together in a more integrated fashion, either formally or informally, to the benefit of our military-veterans community.  It tries to bring government, businesses, nonprofits and institutions together when appropriate.

It came into existence to work on the subject behind the collective impact model buzzword long before it became all the rage.   Frankly, its work can be a tough and tricky proposition, but the end result is often worth it.  To repeat, it is nice to be recognized.  Thank you, Lehigh Valley Magazine.
