Military Community Champions

Creating military and business partnerships

The Bossier Chamber of Commerce is launching a new program in May 2021 to showcase our community's support for our military, spouses and veterans. We seek to create a business environment and community that:

  • Showcases for our military members who move into our community the numerous opportunities here for military spouses and children.
  • Encourages our military members to stay here when they leave the military, because our businesses are committed to hiring veterans.
  • Recruits businesses to the area because we have such a strong military, family and veteran footprint.
  • Comes together to show everyone that we truly support our military, their families and our veterans.
