The Hampton Roads Chamber and Hampton Roads Military and Federal Facilities Alliance are hosting From Macro to Micro: The 2016 Defense Budget and Beyond on September 29 at the Chesapeake Conference Center. Recognizing that the Department of Defense spending is the largest economic driver in Hampton Roads, the defense budget is a defining issue in the local business community. This briefing will provide the most up-to-date information and current trends in U.S. defense spending from content experts as it impacts the national, state and local economy. The forum will be a major draw for not only the business community, but for military commanders, elected officials, and community leaders. Speakers will take questions from the audience.
The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce has a committee supporting the military community, and helping them transition to the life after service in the area. Find out about this great initiative as Connections visits with Priscilla Monti, the VP of Programs for the Chamber.
