Veterans Chamber of Commerce

I am a Veteran and a Small Business Owner. I am constantly searching for ideas and better ways of growing my business.

Today I was searching one of my favorite blogs Veneran Owned Business and ran across the Veterans Chamber of Commerce. This site is packed with programs and assistance for Veterans and Active Duty Military in helping them start their own business.

Here is an over view about them in their own words:

Everything we do is in support of veterans and their families.

Our Mission is clear: We Empower Individuals and Organizations who have ideas or programs that impact the lives of veterans and their families.
Our Message is Simple!:  We believe in establishing strong bonds of collaboration with like-minded individuals and organizations who have a passion for helping veterans.
What We Believe:
We believe in working together as “One-Unit” – We believe in Promoting and Supporting all veterans. 

​What we do:
We help Veterans advance into their next stage in life in three areas:

  1. Entrepreneurship – provide support with training on how to start a business
  2. Business Growth – Provide strategies and business advice
  3. Organizations – Help organizations that serve veterans, expand their reach to the veteran community

On the Service side of the Chamber;
We Empower 
individuals and organizations who have ideas for programs that impact the lives of veterans and their families, in three areas:

  1. Employment 
  2. Education
  3. Family & Wellness”

I signed up today, it was free. I look foward to exploring their programs and will report back what I find in the future.

If you are running a business and/or starting a business in Indiana, give me a call and I can discuss with you options on insuring your business. Call me at (317) 886-0081 or visit me on line at Scott Lynch Agency.

Thank you notes to Hoosier veterans

by Cindy Kirchhofer – State Representative – Indiana

Indy Honor Flight is asking for thank you cards and letters to give to local veterans during their upcoming flight to Washington, D.C.

The nonprofit organization was created to honor World War II, Korean and Vietnam War veterans from Indiana by transporting them to the nation’s capital to visit the memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifices.

On their trip home, veterans receive a packet of letters, drawings and more to enjoy. This is a simple, meaningful way to thank them for all they have done to protect our freedoms.

Please send cards and letters in by May 18 to:
Indy Honor Flight
P.O. Box 10
Plainfield, IN 46168

If you, a family member or friend is interested in being a part of this experience, please have the veteran complete an application here. For other volunteering opportunities, click here.
