355 – Colonel Bob Notch – Veterans Collaborative

I was introduced to Bob Notch through Michael Geary of Hellfish Haven. Michael had Bob on our W.A.R (We are Resilient) collaboration and Bob was on with his to talk about the Veterans Collaborative.  

Bob served in the Army and flew the UH-60 Blackhawk. Later in his Army career, he transferred to the Army Reserve where he finished his time in the military.

After serving he transitioned through a couple of civilian jobs until he was asked to be CEO of Veterans Collaborative.

According to the mission statement, “gathers targeted and current local and virtual event listings, information, resource trackers, and directories relevant to various service areas and resource networks. You can directly update the shared calendar appearing throughout the site, as well as resource trackers whenever possible. Making contributions increases the efficiency of outreach efforts and saves everyone in the network the energy of creating and maintaining various resource lists –– freeing up everyone’s time to focus on their individual missions and impact.”

I wanted to quote this because too many times Veterans Organizations hold onto the tools and information, they have instead of figuring out how to take what they have and work with other organizations to be better advocates for Veterans.

The concept of Veterans Organizations working together means that we can go further together. We learn in the military that no one fights alone, and it should be the same when we are advocating for Veterans. Let’s Collaborate

Thank you for coming on and talking with me Colonel.
