May 2016 Newsletter

May 2016



Join us for our monthly chapter meeting of May 18th for The Value of a Veteran.  Participants will learn about the current and enlarging gap between veterans and our society, the potential impacts and significance of that gap, and how we can use our understanding of these issues to make a difference in our society, the lives of individual veterans, and within our own teams by understanding and hiring this tremendous talent pool.  Our speaker will discuss some of the stigmas associated with veterans along with the vast advantages and incentives that will entice companies to consider recruiting veterans to join their teams.
