Southwestern Illinois College will host a conference Tuesday called the Veterans as Strategic Assets Initiative.
"This event, which will feature a panel discussion comprised of local legislators and experts in the field of veterans relations, will be an opportunity for veterans to learn how to translate military skills for the civilian job market in addition to networking with veteran-friendly employers," noted Director of Veterans Services David Paeth.
It will be held in the Belleville Campus Liberal Arts Complex Theatre and Conference Room, 2500 Carlyle Ave.
