NOV 11

On Veterans Day, we'll be saluting Women Veterans in Business.  Honorees include Jazzii Anderson, Sherita Greer, Juanita Jones, and Sandra K. Walls.

•Board member Charles Adams is hosting this monthly Membership Networking Meeting which begins at 5pm on Thursday, Oct. 20, at West Alley BBQ.  Previous hosts/sponsors providing refreshments for the crowd of members and prospective members are JMCAACC president Duane Cherry of Mission Convalescent Home, new member Michael Herron of Doc's Landscaping and Lawn Service and Jazzii Anderson of WHML and Jazzii Entertainment.

• Forty-five percent of those with active-duty military experience are more likely to become entrepreneurs than those without military experience.  With that in mind, we are saluting Women Veterans in Business on November 11th. Honorees are Jazzii Anderson (mentioned above), branch manager Sherita Greer of BancorpSouth, community activist Juanita Jones of the Keep My Hood Good youth enrichment program, and Sandra K. Walls, founder and president of AIL Logistics Solutions in Memphis.  If you're a woman veteran business owner and would like to know more about this event, call Executive Director Florence Howard at 901-827-0836.

Kudos:   There were 18 teams in the 2016 Follow Me Celebrity Golf Classic -- AIL Logistics Solutions, American Greeting, Bancorp South/UT Martin, City of Jackson, First Tennessee, Hardeman County Warriors, JEA #2, Jonah Affordable Housing, Lane College, Northwestern Mutual, Pinnacle Foods, and Toyota Bodine Aluminum. Once again, many thanks to tournament co-chairs Ted Austin of Jackson Energy Authority and Charley Deal of UTMartin.
