Mesa Veterans Program
The Mesa Veterans Program is comprised of professionals seeking to support veterans within the
community. Dedicated to giving back to those who have served our country, this committee provides
workforce development programs, educational resources, and services pertaining to the transition between
military and civilian life.
The MVP actively works to understand the needs of Mesa’s veterans and has developed a scholarship fund
to further aid them and their families. This group also partners with non-profits, businesses, and
representatives from local and state government in order to ensure change is able to occur. Overall, this
committee invites veterans in the Mesa business community along with any other organization eager to
support and employ U.S. veterans.
The Mesa Hometown Heroes Banner Program is a tribute created for the community to honor fallen service members, veterans, and active-duty service members of the United States Armed Forces.
Banners are display on streetlights in Downtown Mesa, in May and November. This program is offered by the Mesa Chamber in conjuction with the Mesa Veterans Program.

This committee meets monthly, on the third Thursday of the month, with an agenda of topics or opportunities to engage the veterans community and businesses with an interest in veterans affairs. See upcoming meetings in the Chamber Event Calendar.
