Please join me in welcoming the 600 veterans and 3,000 volunteers meeting in Cincinnati this week for the 37th National Veterans Wheelchair Games. The largest annual wheelchair multi-sport and rehabilitation event in the world is taking place at the Duke Energy Convention Center and other venues across the region. Events are free and open to the public.
Sharahn Monk, the Cincinnati Chamber’s Talent Connections Leader, is one of just 19 leaders selected nationally for the U.S. Chamber’s Talent Pipeline Management Academy (TPM). The TPM model is designed to address the mismatch between outcomes of the current education and training systems, which have resulted in employers nationwide trying to find qualified candidates for nearly 6 million unfilled jobs.
The largest Oktoberfest celebration in the nation, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, was recently named the “Most Epic Outdoor Party”. Join us September 15-17. Applications for Oktoberfest food vendors are being accepted through July 26. Application requirements can be found here.
