The American Veterans Committee (AVC) is a non-profit veterans organization that was launched in April 2013 with a mission of organizing networking receptions for Veterans with potential employers from their community and to help spark new business opportunities by linking US veterans to veterans from other countries.[1]

The organization is co-founded and led by the former Chief of Staff of the United States Army Reserve, Major General James A. Kelley (Ret.) who serves as President, Iraq veteran Saif Khan[2][3] serves as Executive Director and Hal Donahue, Lt. Col, USAF (Ret.) serves as Senior Advisor.[4]

Membership in the American Veterans Committee is open to any US Veteran for free so long as they have not received a dishonorable discharge from the military.

The American Veterans Committee is a member organization of the World Veterans Federation. Through the World Veterans Federation the AVC has the ability to connect its members with veterans organizations from other countries, linking veterans with similar professional interests while promoting global cooperation, peace and smart diplomacy.[5]

The American Veterans Committee is not related to the organization of the same name that was active from 1943 to 2008.
