About Us

The National Council of Veteran Associations is an umbrella organization of some 64 distinct Veterans' Associations formed to ensure a strong and independent voice on issues which are of significant interest to the Veterans' community at large. NCVA has diverse membership consisting of a range of member organizations who reflect the width and breadth of the Veteran constituency. In addition to NCVA's ongoing and continuing efforts to ensure that the Traditional Veterans' community receives the most effective services and entitlements possible, in recent years, NCVA has been a leading voice and advocate in the cause of the Modern Day Veteran in furtherance of the enactment of an updated New Veteran's Charter.
