Disabled Veterans National Foundation Adds Three New Board Members

“All three of these new board members have the qualifications and experience to help bring about the necessary changes I have been emphasizing since my arrival at DVNF,” said DVNF CEO Joseph VanFonda (USMC SgtMaj Ret.).

Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 08, 2014

The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (http://www.dvnf.org), a nonprofit veterans service organization that provides critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and our freedom, is announcing the addition of three new board members to serve the organization.

DVNF recently announced that it appointed Mr. Benny Bachand as the organization’s new president. One of Bachand’s initial tasks in that role was to help the CEO add new board members. Three qualified candidates have been selected to fill the necessary roles and will offer oversight and direction to the organization.

Tashawnya McCullough will serve as DVNF’s Vice President. McCullough served in the Army for 20 years, and has since been extremely active in the veterans’ community through her positions as a veterans outreach coordinator and veterans volunteer coordinator with Texas-based nonprofit organizations.

Mike Yates will serve as the new DVNF Treasurer. Yates is a Vietnam veteran of the U.S. Army, and a retired CPA with 38 years of experience of corporate finance. He will serve as the board treasurer, and will help oversee all financial aspects of DVNF’s operations.

Tom Milner is the third new member of the board. Milner has many years of experience working in both financial and IT capacities for public and private entities. He is a forward-thinking, tech-savvy individual whose broad experiences will be extremely valuable.

“All three of these new board members have the qualifications and experience to help bring about the necessary changes I have been emphasizing since my arrival at DVNF,” said DVNF CEO Joseph VanFonda (USMC SgtMaj Ret.). “I thank them for their willingness to be a part of DVNF, and their commitment to the veterans we serve.”

All board members are volunteers and will be tasked with oversight of the organizational operations. In addition, they will help VanFonda foster in new programs, as well as new accountability and fundraising measures so the organization remains transparent in all of its functions.
