The History of VETLANTA

Our history dates back to 2014 when veteran leaders from The Coca-Cola Company decided to reach out to company Veteran Employee Resource Groups/Veteran Affinity Groups across the
Fortune 500 companies in the greater Atlanta area to meet to discuss what each other’s companies were doing to assist veterans. Most in attendance realized during the first meeting,
we were onto something very special which wouldn’t end after the first meeting. 

We initially discovered all of our companies were already making positive contributions for veterans across Atlanta and the United States, however collaboration was the one factor that was often missing.

Through collaboration, VETLANTA was born. While we initially focused on collaboration within our Fortune 100 companies, we quickly realized a broader participant base was eager to join. In short order, we were joined by participants from small and medium companies, veteran nonprofit organizations, government agencies, academia, and transitioning veterans. Over the last six years, we’ve grown to 5,000+ members representing hundreds of organizations and our members include a great mix of veterans and non-veterans.

What is VETLANTA?

VETLANTA is a club operated exclusively for veteran social and business networking and community service purposes.

What is our purpose?

Our purpose is to help veterans get connected to the resources and community they need.

Who do we network with?

We network with Atlanta area businesses (including non-profits, education institutions, government agencies), to find those organizations with like-minded values who may have opportunities for veterans.

How do we maximize our efforts?

To maximize our impact on current efforts, VETLANTA may become involved with local volunteer opportunities in order to facilitate camaraderie and give veterans a chance to network effectively.
