This year’s conference takes place at the Potawatomi Hotel & Casino on May 23rd, from 9am-6pm. The conference brings together Wisconsin veteran-owned businesses, veteran-friendly businesses, corporate leaders and non-profit organizations to reflect on the contributions of veterans to our communities and the state’s economy. It is close to selling out, make sure to quickly grab your tickets.
Price is a proud sponsor of the WVCC, and together have worked to create a supportive community of local veterans. Price encourages veterans and their spouses to get involved and leverage this network for opportunities to join the workforce, meet other veterans, and remain engaged in the military culture. The WI Veterans Business Conference is the perfect opportunity to tap into a majority of local veteran-owned businesses.
This year’s conference is the largest yet, featuring 100 exhibitor booths, representing a swath of our 250+ members. Presenting several opportunities for breakout sessions throughout the day, participants can expect to focus on topics including:
- Leveraging your LinkedIn platform to achieve professional goals
- Workforce Development through a veteran-ready culture
- Supplier Diversity: including veteran-owned businesses in corporate supply chains
- Health Care: Navigating from VA Choice Program to VA Mission Act
- Cyber security for business owners
- Real estate: Demystify the VA Home Loan for industry professionals
- …and more
A special feature of this year’s conference is a panel on how to participate in the DNC conference taking place in 2020. The conference is expected to bring over 250M in revenue to the city, and this lecture will help veteran-owned businesses learn how to get involved.
We’re also very excited to hear from veteran and former Commissioner of Major League Baseball, Bud Selig. The Secretary of Veteran Affairs, Mary Kolar, will also be speaking, alongside other Wisconsin politicians.
With a luncheon and happy hour included, there’s no better opportunity to get in touch with the veteran community here in southeastern Wisconsin. You can purchase tickets here.
