AVECO, a Missouri non-profit organization, was established in 1994 by a group of School Certifying Officials that saw a need to develop training, information exchange, and workshops. AVECO has become the foremost training and networking organization for professionals administering education benefits for veterans and other eligible persons.
What can AVECO do for you?
Laws, rules, and procedures that relate to education benefits are frequently modified. AVECO in partnership with Central Office Staff, Education Liaison Representatives, State Approving Agencies, Regional Processing Staff, and other agencies ensure that you’re informed of these updates and changes.
Networking for School Officials
Although the GI Bill regulations are federal and policy and procedure is supposed to be uniform border to border, individual practices vary. What is the best practice for you? Just ask! Sometimes nothing helps work through an issue better than the insight of someone in the same position. AVECO provides a helpful forum through our annual conference to compare notes with other schools as to what works and what may not.
Training, Training, and More Training!
One thing you can be assured of as an AVECO member is that you will have the opportunity to learn a lot about the VA and VA processes. You will also have the opportunity to receive answers to tough questions directly from the source at the AVECO Conference. Whether it’s hands-on training with new systems or review of office procedures, AVECO’s goal as an organization is to make you the best trained, most knowledgeable School Certifying Official you can be!
