Charlie Meyer, Chair of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, hosted the Chamber’s First Inaugural Military and Veterans Affairs Conference with Virginia’s Department of Veterans Services and more than 620 participants. As Virginia celebrates it’s recent ranking as the #1 state to do business in the country, the Virginia Chamber is equally proud to be working with DVS to make Virginia the best state in the country for our Veterans, Active Duty Military, and their spouses. With 30 military installations in the Commonwealth and 21,000 active duty mustering out of service in 2019, the Chamber wants to make sure all of our Veterans and military spouses stay right here in Virginia to join our workforce and make Virginia home. Our Veterans and Military spouses are among the most talented and exceptional job candidates in the country, and Virginia businesses want to hire them now! #HireVetsNow!
