Channel Partners Teams with Hire Heroes USA to Host Veteran Job Seekers at Spring Conference & Expo

PRESS RELEASE — PHOENIX – March 31, 2017 – Channel Partners is pleased to announce its Spring 2017 Veterans Initiative, underwritten by Granite. This marks the third Channel Partners event in which veteran job-seekers have been given access to educational and networking opportunities.

With support from Granite and Hire Heroes USA, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a four-star rating on Charity Navigator, Channel Partners is hosting 11 veteran job-seekers at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo, April 10-13, 2017, at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Channel Partners is supplying a dedicated meeting room and full Expo passes. Granite is underwriting travel, hotel and incidental expenses. Women in the Channel has been instrumental in matching vets with industry mentors and is hosting female attendees at its colocated networking event. Cloud Girls is also providing mentors.

“As a veteran, I know how daunting it can be to reenter the civilian workforce,” said Lorna Garey, editor-in-chief of Channel Partners. “Yet the skillsets veterans bring to the table — initiative, accountability, technical know-how — make them ideally matched to the needs of today’s channel companies. I want to thank Granite, Women in the Channel, Cloud Girls and our mentors for their support of our troops and spouses.”{ad}
