Welcome VERA Members,
Future Members, and Friends!

We’re glad you’ve taken the time to visit our brand-new website.

As the members of the VERA Executive Committee, we have spent a lot of time discussing how this website can best communicate our goals, plans, and outreach for VERA over the course of this year and into the future.

We want to make sure you are informed about upcoming events, opportunities for engagement, and ways to reach out to us with any questions or needs.

Please take a look around!
