Veterans in Media & Entertainment ("VME") is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which originates initiatives to promote veterans’ careers in the entertainment arts. VME’s mission is to empower veterans while reducing problems for this underrepresented community.
Since its inception in 2012, VME has grown to over 3,000 members and launched chapters in NYC, Chicago, DC, and Atlanta. With this model for continued expansion generating momentum and enthusiasm, VME has established the gold standard for connecting veterans with show business. Leaders from every segment of the industry have aligned with VME to accelerate and expand the organization’s growth.
As the organization’s support and membership strengthened, the organizational structure was developed to leverage its strongest components while remaining nimble and adaptive to change. VME’s two preeminent structural models are programs and customer/market alignment.
VME has seen enormous growth and its popularity has increased dramatically. Consequently, we’ve implemented systems, forged relationships, and continually develop funding sources to sustain our progress.
