WINDOW ROCK — The Office of the President and Vice President and the Navajo Nation Veterans Administration have issued a request for proposals from qualified and experienced individuals for the position of Executive Director of the Navajo Nation Veterans Administration.
“The Navajo Nation Veterans Administration Executive Director position, under the Office of the President and Vice President, is very challenging and time-demanding, but it can also be very rewarding based on one’s ability and passion to work with various veteran groups. One of the key principles of the Nez-Lizer Administration is T’áá hwó’ ajít’éego, the practice of self-reliance and self-determination, which is also a key component in moving the Veterans Administration forward in a positive direction,” said Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez.
The Navajo Nation Veterans Administration was created to help alleviate the shortage of services and programs such as health, housing, benefits and claims, education, and more for eligible Navajo veterans, and when appropriate, to promote or maintain the economic development of the Navajo Nation through programs and services provided.
“The Executive Director position is critical in our administration’s efforts to improve services to our Navajo Veterans,” said Vice President Lizer. “We have veterans in all agencies across the Navajo Nation and we are striving to empower them and to give them a hand up. We are seeking a self-motivated person that can be effective in communicating and facilitating services with veterans, the Office of the President and Vice President, and someone who can use other resources to improve our Nation’s Veterans Housing Program, processing of benefits, and more.”
