About the Veterans Business Council

To become a member of the Veterans Business Council the Veteran or designated employee of a Veteran-owned business must be a member in good standing of the Greater Arlington Chamber of Commerce. If the Veteran is employed by a corporate member, the candidate must have the formal endorsement of their employer.
