The Bossier Chamber of Commerce is excited to introduce their much-anticipated Military Community Champion program. This program seeks to promote our businesses, schools and organizations that have made the commitment to intentionally provide support for our military connected individuals.
The Bossier Chamber of Commerce, along with Strategic Champion sponsor Willis-Knighton Health System and Operational Community Champion sponsor Barksdale Federal Credit Union, will host a news conference to announce this new endeavor on Tuesday, May 17 at 10 a.m. at the Willis Knighton Palmetto Village Clubhouse, 4200 Palmetto Road, in Benton.
This venture informs our military service members and their dependents which businesses are apt to employ trailing spouses and create opportunities within our community that directly impact military members or veterans.
“When a business chooses to participate in this program, it is a way of supporting our military by providing resources that assist them in caring for their families,” said Lisa Johnson, President/CEO of the Bossier Chamber of Commerce. “There is no greater way to say thank you to our military families for keeping us safe than providing resources for our military members to care for their own families. As businesses participate in this program, they also contribute to the economic growth of our area by supporting our largest employer in the region – Barksdale Air Force Base – along with all of our military reserve units.”
In addition to the unveiling of the Military Community Champion program, this event will be one of the first events at the newly renovated Palmetto Village Clubhouse.
