Join Battle Tested
Battle Tested Veterans (BTV) is a non-profit organization that uses the power of first-person narratives to challenge veteran stereotypes and bridge the gap between transitioning military members and civilian hiring influencers. Founded in 2015, our mission is to use the art of storytelling to connect communities, cultivate understanding and prove our battle-tested veterans are invaluable corporate assets.
Want to join us in connecting veterans and community one story at a time? Read on! BTV is building the active, working board that will lay the foundation to expand our organizations’ reach and impact across the US among transitioning veterans, talent acquisition professionals and hiring influencers.
As a board, we are a dynamic collection of humans. Although we all have military backgrounds, that is not a requirement to join the BTV squad. We do, however, want to understand your connection to and passion for supporting the veteran community.
Looking forward, we are ramping up our impact in the talent acquisition and corporate hiring space, so any experience or ties you have with this realm will definitely peak our interest. Long story short, if you are a born bulldozer looking to challenge veteran stereotypes and help transitioning military service members reach their full potential, let’s chat.
As part of our growing all-volunteer organization, we need an Events Lead to collaborate closely with the Board President and Digital Lead to help BTV pull off its best annual flagship event to date.
Who You Are
Not only can you meticulously plan and pull off a signature soiree, but you can make sure it is the ambassador for a mission and packs an inspirational punch for attendees. You are savvy at building the buzz before, and making the most of meaningful connections, to follow any of your events. Adept at threading character throughout, you know how to balance personality and professionalism to make a gathering intimate and impactful whether it’s for a guest list of 10 or 1,010. In addition to event planning and prep, you are also a bit of a media guru with experience making an in-person event just as powerful over digital channels. No stranger to working on a budget, you will get the most bang for the buck, while still putting on a grand show.
You have at least 6 hours a month (likely a few more leading up to the flagship event) to commit to a volunteer board position including the monthly board meetings. Needless to say, you are already excited to join us for our BTV annual flagship event in October.
