Members of the GBVC are using Slack as a messaging app to stay better connected to each other and share events that are relevant to the VSO community. Slack is free to use and has great mobile and web apps. If you want to join, please send an email to boston@collaborate.vet. If you are part of an organization that already has a GBVC slack account, like IAVA, Team Rubicon, Boston.gov, you can join directly by going here: https://collaboratevet.slack.com/.

We've organized our channels to reflect our varied focus areas: 

  • Affinity groups, such as advocacy, community, education, employment, healthcare, justice, legal
  • Working groups, such as steering committee, summits
  • General interest, such as general, random, events.

If you know of an event that is of general interest to VSOs, please post to the #events channel.
