Prepare informational presentations for Chamorro veterans to explain how the U.S. political process affects them; encourage active participation to leverage political power in order to influence legislation that affects them and their families

Networking
Establish a network of members throughout the 50 states, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands — connected by regional chapters and linked at the national level — to help share information and build political power

Research & Analysis
Monitor services delivered by government agencies and organizations that serve veterans to ensure that they are meeting the unique needs of Chamorro veterans; monitor current legislation for its impact on Chamorro veterans and develop appropriate responses

Vision

As the first organization of its kind, NOCVA seeks to be a nationally recognized advocacy organization that unites Chamorro veterans at the grassroots-level, connected at the national-level by regional chapters throughout the 50 states in the U.S., Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI).

Organized and motivated with common purpose, members will be able to effectively participate and engage in the U.S. political process for the purpose of influencing legislation for the benefit of Chamorro veterans and their families.

NOCVA’s long-range plans include hosting a national convention that will bring members together to recognize accomplishments and plan long-term strategic initiatives.
