Veterans Transition Study

The Houston County Area Chamber of Commerce received a request to post this information for all spouses of US Military Veterans.

veteran-transition-studyGood morning!

We are reaching out to you for an exciting and much needed research the City of Clarksville, in partnership with local and state agencies, is spearheading. We have been collecting data from 10 public and 10 private sector employers on their perspectives of Veteran transition and what makes them successful on the job. We have interviewed hiring managers and their identified successful veteran employees- but we also want to interview SPOUSES.

We believe that spouses are an integral part of the transition process, and we are looking for spouses to participate in our Focus Study groups on 31 October and 1 November. Our consultant, Dr Fred Mael, is an organizational psychologist who has worked with the Army for the last decade. Please see attached flyer for details on dates and location.

We would be grateful if you could disseminate this flyer or the info so that we could have participation from spouses in the Erin/Houston County area.

Thank you in advance, and I look forward to communicating with you!
