Purpose

The Veterans and Military Affairs Advisory Board (VMAAB) works to identify concerns of the Military and Veteran community in the City of Albuquerque, with the responsibility of drafting recommendations to both the City Council and the Mayor’s Office.

The Board also serves as a network for the exchange of information relative to veterans activities.
