Military Leadership Forum to connect Barksdale AFB leaders and business community

by BIZ Magazine

The Bossier Chamber of Commerce is gathering top leaders from Barksdale Air Force Base and our local military units for its annual Military Leadership Forum.

The Military Leadership Forum was created to increase community awareness about all the major happenings in our military community and gain insight on the day-to-day operations for the Air Force, as well as our local guard and reserve units. This year, we have the support of our partners at Brentwood Hospital (STAR Program) and Willis-Knighton Health System to bring this event to our business community.

Our Forum is set for Thursday, Oct. 12 at 11:30 a.m. at Margaritaville Resort Casino.

Our invited guest speakers will feature representatives from the following:

  • The 8th Air Force
  • The 2nd Bomb Wing
  • The 307th Bomb Wing
  • The National Guard

“Our goal is to cultivate awareness of our military’s mission and how our community can enhance support for the men and women of Barksdale Air Force Base, our local reserve and guard units, their families and our veterans,” said Lisa Johnson, President/CEO of the Bossier Chamber.

This event also serves as an opportunity to gain a better understanding of how our partners with our local units are serving our community and country from right in our own backyard.
