The Minnesota Commanders’ Task Force (CTF) was created in 1988 and is comprised of elected commanders and appointed adjutants of the nine largest congressionally-chartered Veterans Service Organizations in the state of Minnesota. Key functions of this group include developing a united Veterans legislative agenda and actively advocating for it before state and elected officials; serving as a non-partisan advisory group to the Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA), the Governor and legislators on Veterans’ issues in the state; and working to seek and form Veterans Service Organization partnerships in program development.
