Possibly the most underutilized pool of talent in our country are our military veterans. There are a variety of reasons for why veterans are unemployed, or all too often underemployed, but there are also incredible success stories for employers and veterans finding the perfect unions. We'll explore some of the underlying issues impacting veteran employment during this session and our panel of experts will provide a variety of insights and resources that can assist both employers and veteran job seekers in reducing the risk and finding great matches.
The U.S. Small Business Administration has designated the first week in November as National Veterans Small Business Week. With Veterans Day just ahead, this is a great opportunity to talk about the many programs and resources that the SBA offers for veteran and military spouse business owners to assist them in starting and growing businesses. We'll be joined by SBA representatives in Florida who will also talk specifically about the SBA events happening during the week.
Lonnie Koyama is the Lead Outreach & Marketing Specialist for the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) in South Florida. He has been with the SBA for eleven years. His duties involve fostering economic development with business organizations. In addition, he counsels businesses and connects them to resources to help them start and grow.
Prior to the work with the Federal government, Lonnie had a long private sector career that includes extensive management and supervisory experience with several national retailers over an area encompassing several western states. He also served four years in the United States Marine Corps where he was honorably discharged.
As we wind the year up and 'tis the season of giving, we want to again talk about the business of nonprofits and highlight some of the many great nonprofit organizations that are a part of FAVOB. Please join us as we discuss the reasons to start or not start a nonprofit, organization structures and challenges, revenue opportunities, and learn about some of the important missions that FAVOB nonprofit members have.
Here at FAVOB, we believe that if you have served our country and done so honorably than there should be a real opportunity to start and grow your own business in the State of Florida.
