Interested in becoming a part of history? The Board of Judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC) has expressed an interest in creating a historical society for the Court.
The CAVC has an interesting and dynamic legislative history surrounding its creation. The CAVC is the youngest federal appellate court in the judiciary and occupies an important place in the appellate structure for the resolutions of veterans' claims. Because the CAVC has national jurisdiction, the support base for the CAVC historical society membership would be national in scope.
The United States Supreme Court historical society was founded in 1974, and the Federal Bar historical society was founded in 1982. The CAVC historical society mission will be similar to that of the Supreme Court's and the Federal Bar Association's; to collect and preserve the history of the CAVC. To that end the CAVC historical society may support, sponsor and conduct educational programs for practitioners, the general public, scholars, and historians. The CAVC historical society could support research, publish books, journals, electronic materials, and preserve artifacts, all geared to increase public awareness of the history of the CAVC and its unique contributions to resolving issues regarding our nations veterans.
If you are interested in becoming part of this new and important historical society, please contact Aniela Szymanski at email@example.com.
