Most of the questions you may have were covered in the January 29 VACO webinar and in the Q&A provided in that webinar. If you were unable to attend that webinar please review it. It is available on the GI Bill website for you to review or can be reached via: https://www.benefits.va.gov/GIBILL/docs/presentations/Colmery_OfficeHours_012020.pdf
Please note/understand the following:
NCACVA and I were unable to incorporate the VACO crafted training into our upcoming All School’s meeting due to the timing of when VACO made the materials available and due to the limited time we have available during a one day meeting. The only power point that would have counted for everyone is 2 hours long and thus the entire agenda would have need to be revised. Additionally, that training is very basic and does not cover anything pertaining to the Colmery Act changes, BAH changes, extension sites etc. It is somewhat on par with what I present during my New Certifying Official training sessions.
NOTE: I am not involved in the planning/hosting of this conference can cannot answer questions for you. Please contact the Alabama Veterans Affairs Association with questions.
