Region 3 Director

Sara McVicker

Region 3 Director

I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and served in the Army Nurse Corps from 1968-71, including a tour at the 71st Evacuation Hospital in Pleiku, RVN, where I was awarded a Bronze Star for Meritorious Service. I worked for the VA for twenty-seven years, the last seven in VA Central Office.

 

I joined VVA in 1982, have been a delegate to all but four National Conventions, was Secretary of the Washington State Council from 1987-90, and currently am in my sixth term as Maryland State Council Secretary. I am Vice Chair of the National Finance Committee and Chair of the Budget Oversight Subcommittee and a member of the Health Care and Women Veterans Committees.

 

VVA will be making serious decisions about its future over the next few years. The VVA Constitution says “control and management of the Corporation and its funds and affairs shall be vested in the Board of Directors.” My experience in VVA and veterans issues will enable me to be a knowledgeable participant in that process. I believe very strongly that the National Board of Directors must seek to include the State Councils and Chapters in the decisions it will be making about VVA’s operations and activities.

 

If re-elected, I will listen to your concerns and I will be available to help you. Most of all, I will work in the best interests of VVA, Region 3, and  its members, Chapters, and State Councils.
