Review for Iraq And Afghanistan Veterans Of America Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

I think IAVA does a wonderful job of lobbying and marketing, but their organizational structure is flawed. They seem to have no elected leadership, but they play in the veteran membership space which is largely dominated by member-based organization that elect some portion of their leadership. However, they claim to be the go-to organization on all issues related to Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. That is a little suspect to me: no elected officers in your membership based organization? Who votes on the policy issues? You folks are also missing a core component: Programs and Services. You are a young org so you have some work to do, but that's ok. Good effort all around.
