Western Hosts Veterans Conference

Western Technical College is playing host to a statewide veterans conference this week.

The Wisconsin Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (WACRAO) is holding the 2018 Veterans Conference at Western on June 6 and 7. The conference includes presentations on Veterans Affairs education resources, information on credit for prior learning, and veterans’ educational benefits.

Keynote speakers include Daniel J. Zimmerman, Secretary of Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs, and Don Weber, founder and chairman of Logistics Health Inc. Breakout sessions were also available.

Western Veterans Services Manager Jackie Helegeson says the conference is a great place to share ideas on ways to serve veterans looking to return to school, including hearing ideas from the UW System.
