All alumni from USNA and other service academies are welcome!
The Business Development Meeting aims to actively support USNA and other service academy alumni-owned businesses and service providers in the Hampton Roads area.
We leverage the inherent trust and commonalities of our shared values and Service Academy background to develop awareness of alumni businesses and promote the opportunity to mutually support one another in our respective business lines through referrals, business-to-business arrangements, and strategic teaming opportunities.
We facilitate mutual support and awareness through the monthly Business Development Meeting, an online alumni business directory, and various networking events.
The monthly meeting agenda allows for the introduction and promotion of each member's business as well as the opportunity for mentoring, education and relationship-building.
This meeting will be a hybrid in-person and virtual session; everyone can attend in the fashion that works best for their individual circumstances. Hosting hybrid meetings helps us continue to expand and grow participation, so be sure to share this with a classmate or friend.
