Help us spread the support of our Roundtable events by expanding the network through Wisconsin's corporate sphere.

On Thursday, December 5, 2019, join us at 4th Base Restaurant at 6 pm for our Q4 gathering. This is a social, networking opportunity, and the price of admission is only a friend who hasn't been to one of our events yet.

We support veteran affinity groups through a collaborative approach of sharing best practices, guidance, and mentorship. We offer opportunities for networking and aim to support veterans and their employers throughout Wisconsin.

Not familiar with Affinity Groups? Come learn how they support a corporate culture that attracts and helps retain the best employees you can find - military veterans.
