November Chamber Breakfast

November 14, 2019

Martindale Country Club, Auburn

This month, we’ll have Breakfast for Dinner along with our regular speaker program at Martindale Country Club from 4:30PM-7:00PM.

This month’s topic: Veteran Hiring for Employers

Many Americans outside of the military are unaware of the many skills and experiences that veterans acquire while in service. Misconceptions about what sort of skills one picks up while in military service abound, and some employers mistakenly believe that the skills that veterans have are not transferable outside of the military world.

In an effort to clear up some of those misconceptions, Leo and Tom will discuss the overarching military culture, bring light to the many intangible skills that employers can benefit from by hiring a veteran, and address the misconception that the skills that veterans have are not transferable outside of the military world. They will also share some veteran hiring success stories to help you understand that hiring a veteran is not only a good idea, it’s good business!

Don’t forget to bring business cards for door prizes and networking and $5 for 50/50 tickets!
