Veterans Conference focuses on caring


PORTSMOUTH (March 3, 2017) – Service Credit Union will host the 7th Annual Seacoast Veterans Conference, which provides a unique opportunity for veterans to meet those service providers and agencies  specializing in providing benefits and specialty services to the military.

These local New Hampshire service providers and agencies will be able to relay in person what they can offer veterans and their families during the April 8th event from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the credit union’s Corporate Office located at 3003 Lafayette Road in Portsmouth, N.H. This is the fourth year the credit union has hosted the event.

Brigadier General (Ret.) Carolyn Protzmann will be the master of ceremonies of the conference. Guest speakers include Brigadier General Laurie Farris, Chief of Staff New Hampshire Air National Guard, and Dan Marcek, owner of Vetflix, a Brookline, N.H. company specializing in interviewing veterans and sharing their stories through film.  This year’s conference theme is “From Your Lips to Our Ears – A Caring Outreach Response” and will feature a video presentation by Vetflix followed by an interactive discussion on the military experience.

The afternoon will include demonstrations of alternative health practices to benefit veterans’ well-being, such as vibrational gongs, acupuncture, Reiki and Tai Chi.

“We are thrilled to be able to provide important tools for veterans in the state,” Protzmann said, “Service Credit Union, Long Term Care Partners and others take a leadership role in supporting the military community by supporting this Veterans Conference year after year.”

“We are pleased to be able to support our local veterans and their families through this event. It is an honor to host this conference which is an important resource for those who have served,” said David Van Rossum, President/CEO of Service Credit Union. “This event will make them aware of the special services and service providers available to them.”
