Veterans & Military
The Veterans & Military Committee plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between the business community and veteran organizations in Montgomery County. By serving as a liaison, the committee helps facilitate collaboration and cooperation to enhance support and resources for military personnel and their families.
One of the primary objectives of the committee is to connect Chamber members who can contribute services and assistance to veterans. This connection allows businesses to offer discounts and other benefits to military personnel, recognizing their service and providing practical support. By promoting events and volunteer opportunities, the committee helps raise awareness and participation, fostering a sense of community and involvement among both veterans and the business community.
By bringing together these different stakeholders, the Veterans & Military Committee helps create a network of support and resources that can make a positive impact on the lives of military personnel and their families. It serves as a platform for collaboration, ensuring that the needs of veterans are met effectively while also facilitating the engagement of the business community in supporting those who have served their country.
