Welcome to our biggest business events of the year! Showing up is half the battle as we are all balancing a hundred things in this fast-paced world. Our time is valuable and we get inundated with invites, opportunities and fly-by-night veteran organizations that keep popping up around the country daily. Many mean well but they are recreating the wheel. Working together and collaboration is the name of the game today.

Keeping the Promise

Many have their niche-something they do very well for our veterans. How powerful would it be if we sat at the table, together, and figured out how we can work together to make it less confusing for sponsors and Veterans? DVBA members are doing just that. Our brand, network and influence is growing.

We know what we do well and we are duplicating this nationwide.

Keeping the Promise (KTP)

Each year, the Disabled Veteran Business Alliance holds Keeping the Promise events to help small business contractors grow their business and provide sponsors with an opportunity to market, advertise, and connect with contractors.

Keeping the Promise combines networking, business matchmaking, information sharing, personal access to government and corporate contracting officials, and success celebration designed for both the novice business owner to the experienced entrepreneur.

Our diverse, highly experienced veteran-led organization is made up of volunteers working within committees, chapters, advisory board and the corporate advisory board along with the national board of directors who govern and shape the future of the DVBA. Our contractors and staff are top notch, committed and passionate about managing the organization in a way that provides real value to our members.

Thank you to each and everyone of you that are devoted to helping veteran owned businesses start, sustain or grow thereby providing purpose which helps the veteran, their family, the community and nation as a whole.
