How do we care for our service members once they leave the military? A public-private partnership found an answer, and iBrandPhoto was on hand to document the launch. 

Points of Light hosted a luncheon at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce where representatives of ITT Exelis, the Corporation for National and Community Service (home to AmeriCorps), and more than 50 veteran and military service organizations, nonprofits and government agencies officially launched the Community Blueprint - a huge public-private partnership to support reintegration of returning military service members, veterans and their families.

The iBrandPhoto solution provided public relations photography of the Community Blueprint events.

Our coverage began before the event with a review of event strategy, objectives, messages and shot lists. On event day, we provided editorial style photography designed to tell the story of the launch, combined with captions and interviews. Low resolution photos were also delivered ready to post to your social networks.

At the end of the day, Points of Light could literally drag and drop photos into their communications products, with CEO Michelle Nun issuing her email Change Notes that afternoon, with photos and captions included.

To advance the Community Blueprint, ITT Exelis CEO and President David Melcher announced the company's five-year, $5 million investment in this Points of Light initiative, as well as a new Exelis employee volunteer program that will add the company's human resources to the effort.

“Civilian transition is one of the greatest challenges facing many service members, veterans and their families when they return to their communities,” said Neil Bush, Chairman of Points of Light’s Board of Directors.
