President's Report

July 21, 2017

Continuing To Build Thank you for the opportunity to bring another weekly update from the  Ashland Alliance. It has been a very productive and busy week.  Several meetings kicked off the work week on Monday.  We are wanting to visit each and every Alliance Member one on one.  On Tuesday, Bare Arms Indoor Range hosted Business After Hours with catering by Patriot Barbeque.  This turned out to be a great After Hours with many of our friends and members getting to see the area's first indoor gun range.  After Hours are a great way to show off your business and  let others experience what you have to offer. Our board of directors' meeting was held on Wednesday and was packed with useful information - Ernie Pitt spoke to the group about the Employment Support of the Guard & Reserves.  Did you know that currently 50% of the United States Military is made up of Reserves and Guard Units?  That is why it is so important to have great relations with private sector employeers.
