The Greater Irving – Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the Small Business Administration and SCORE Programs, will host a free informational business forum for Veterans from 9:15 to 11:30 a.m. Dec. 2, 2014.
The forum is open to all Veterans and all typical charges associated with the forum have been waived for Veterans. The forum will be held in The Vault at the Irving Chamber, 5201 N. O’Connor Blvd., Suite 100 in Irving.
“The forum is a tribute to the military and a way for the Irving Chamber to thank them for their service and help them transition into entrepreneurs and job creators,” said Don Williams, Irving Chamber Director of Business and Visitor Services.
The Veterans Business Forum is aimed at providing information on available resources for veterans to use in starting a new business or to help rejuvenate and manage an existing business. This will be an interactive forum and questions will be encouraged.
The Irving Chamber is a Three Star Chamber of Valor, the highest rating honored by Hiring Our Heroes. The Chamber of Valor acknowledges the contributions of local chambers, industry associations and business development organizations that join the Hiring Our Heroes mission of finding meaningful employment for veterans, transitioning service members and military spouses.
