Great American Defense Community Celebration Breakfast

The greater Columbia Region will be honored in June at the Association of Defense Communities National Summit in Washington, DC as a Great American Defense Community (GADC). To celebrate this award and all of the organizations that help make us a GADC Community, the Columbia Chamber will host The Great American Defense Community Appreciation Breakfast on May 22, 2019. This breakfast will unite the military with the business community so that we can celebrate together this distinguished award. The Chamber will show its appreciation to honorees from the SC Military Base Task Force, WIS TV Year of the Veteran, Fort Jackson Educational – Student Ambassador Program, University of South Carolina Education Outreach Program, and Fort Jackson Spousal Employment Program.
