The Veterans Advisory Council serves as a conduit for information and resources for the county’s 17,000 veterans and their families who may need assistance furthering their education, finding employment, receiving counseling or finding other services.
The Council collaborates with:
- Established military veteran-oriented service organizations to evaluate, develop and promote new and existing programs and services for veterans and their families within Frederick County;
- Other county commissions, boards and councils, and county staff with regard to policies, programs, and concerns related to veterans’ interest; and
- The County Executive and County Council to develop and promote programs and services in the state and county related to the needs of veterans and their families.
Public meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in Winchester Hall's 3rd floor conference room, unless otherwise stated.
The advisory council is comprised of seven voting members and seven non-voting members.
