What: Senior industry, government, and military leaders will come together to learn — and share success stories — about how hiring service members and veterans drives bottom-line business results. Held in partnership with the NC Chamber of Commerce, these events are designed to help NC companies integrate military employment into their human resource strategy and to make annual military hiring commitments.
Who Should Attend?
Senior-level leaders (Presidents, Vice Presidents, Directors, and other business leaders) who set their company’s strategic vision will walk away with a new understanding of how military hires drive business results, and how to integrate military employment into their business strategy. All attendees should come ready to hear and discuss what some of NC’s leading companies are doing to grow and support a strong military workforce.
