Weekly Military Information – 13 May 2015


The Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce’s annual program connecting active duty military with business people returns with Operation Partnership. This program pairs military participants with their civilian counterparts, allowing active duty members to experience day-to-day activities in the civilian workforce before they leave the military. The program kicks off with a breakfast on June 8th at 8 am at the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce’s offices with a cost of $20 for business people. Business people looking to host a military member can register on our events page. Active duty who would like to participate can email me at mmaurino@tampachamber.com . We are hoping to schedule 30 business people to match up with 30 military members. This event is complimentary for active duty military.
