Guest Speaker: Nicole Bowe-Rahming
Nicole is excited to share more about Gulf Coast Mil Meetup, a Military Community Career Centered Meet Up & Networking Group. Powered by the people - for the people. These are free events and not affiliated to any organization... which means this is a relaxed environment where it has no attachments to any company/companies.
Nicole is a proud 29-year military spouse and supporter to her Active Duty service member Michael who has served in the U.S. Navy for 36 years. She is also a proud Navy mom. She has moved with her family of 4, 13 times both overseas and within the continental U.S. Nicole and Michael are now on the journey to transitioning in late 2023.
For the past three (3) years she has actively supported transitioning veteran and military spouse initiatives including but not limited to Milcity Meetup. (formerly known as Linkedin MilCity), Vets2Industry, Hiring Our Heroes, Skillbridge, Joint Base San Antonio Alliance, Grunt Style Foundation, Veterati, Texas Veteran Commission, Military Spouse Economic Empowerment Zone (Space Coast), and Act NOW Education.
She is also the Founder and Principal Consultant of The Fortitude Institute.
Active duty representatives from the area bases are always invited to attend this Committee Meeting and give updates at each meeting.
And, we encourage Veterans from all service branches to be involved with the Chamber's Military & Veteran Affairs Committee.
The meetings are a good forum to communicate military member needs and issues to our business community and a vehicle for the business community to communicate opportunities and resources available to military families in the Navarre area.
The Navarre Chamber's Military & Veteran Affairs Committee is committed to supporting all the active duty and retired military families in the Navarre area.
It is our goal to make military service members and their families always feel welcome, whether they are just here to visit or have made our community their home.
The Committee is focused on opportunities to help enhance our community and make it the best place for military families to live, shop, visit and enjoy.
The military bases located in the Navarre area have an enormous economic impact on our community and the local economy, and we are committed to helping strengthen the relationships between our local business community and military personnel and their families and partnerships that are mutually beneficial.
We never take for granted the hard work, dedication and sacrifice that our military families have made and/or are making for our country, and we believe we must always let them know that we, as a community, care a great deal about them.
The Chamber's Annual Military Appreciation Picnic is the perfect opportunity for the businesses in the Navarre area to come together to thank our local hometown heroes for everything they do for our community, county and Northwest Florida. From volunteering during the hurricane recoveries to serving abroad, our service men and women dedicate their lives to serving others. This Annual Picnic is our community's opportunity to show them our appreciation by treating their families to an annual fun-filled patriotic themed picnic on Navarre Beach.
The next Picnic is currently planned to take place in May 2023 on Navarre Beach, and all active duty, Veterans & retired military families will be invited to attend.
In addition, there are also special event opportunities for Navarre Chamber Military & Veteran Affairs Committee Members to participate in, including base tours, ceremonies and holiday events.
The Navarre Chamber Military and Veteran Affairs Committee Meetings are open to all Chamber Members and usually held on the first Monday of every month at 11:30 am. (There is no extra cost for Chamber Members to be part of this Committee.)
