Annually the Pima Community College SBDC hosts this years veterans conference “Creating a Culture of Excellent”. Attendees are provided a day filled with impactful information for those in business or want to start a business. The Mayor kicks off the event, the keynote speaker Paul Smiley, is a veteran and his company Sonoran Technologies is in a number of states throughout the country and he hires as many veterans as he can, then a skit to focus on company culture. Also included is a catered lunch. All at no cost thanks to our sponsors. Our key sponsors are Raytheon and TEP. Also, there will be 30+ exhibitor tables with resources for veterans. The college and the SBDC salute our military and veterans and are proud to provide this resource.
