The Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce is holding its first Teaming, Training and Transitioning Conference and Expo on Nov. 16.
The half-day event starts with breakfast and features an address by keynote speaker Michael Cardarelli, principal deputy undersecretary for benefits at the US Department of Veteran Affairs.
The conference takes place from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16 at the Mason Inn Conference Center and Hotel at George Mason University.
The cost is $50 for preregistered business individuals or $60 at the door. Veterans and active servicemen may attend the conference for free if they bring their resume or attend in uniform.
Attendees will be able to connect with government contractors, commercial businesses, private employers, as well as take advantage of other advisory resources.
Businesses and organizations attending include Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Northern Virginia Community College, George Mason University, Booz Allen Hamilton and Citibank, among others.
The conference's three focuses include teaming, training and transitioning.
Exhibitors will focus on hiring and supporting veterans who are going from the military to the civilian workforce. They will have free advice for veteran job seekers and will collect resumes for current and future positions.
A number of breakout sessions will be held highlighting the companies in attendance and the programs each has to offer to veterans and those coming from a military background.
There will also be private organizations, employers and community resources that focus on the transition from military to civilian employment.
