Suffolk County Legis. Tom Muratore, R-Ronkonkoma, announced that Veterans Resource Day is being held on Friday, March 30.
The free event has been specifically developed for all Veterans; service disabled Veterans, discharging active duty personnel, reservists and the National Guard to provide the resources available to help our Veterans get back to work. The event is being held from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Roosevelt Hall at Farmingdale State College and is designed for “Helping All Veterans Get Back to Work.”
The program will include resources and information on employment, technical assistance for starting or growing an existing business, certification programs, training opportunities, small business management training, funding resources, and individual employment issues or concerns. The goal of the event is to get all Long Island Veterans working in their own business, employed, or better prepared for employment.
“It is important to take this opportunity to make a difference and help our Veterans get back to work," Muratore said in a statement. "All Long Island Veterans and their families deserve to either be employed at a job they enjoy or run their own business successfully and that’s what this resource day is about."
Pre-registration for this program is required. To register, please call (631) 420-2765 or go to www.farmingdale.edu/sbdc and click on “workshops” on the top menu.
