Chamber’s Veterans Business Council Elects New Officers

SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce Veterans Business Council will be led by a newly elected group of officers in the year ahead, as voted on at a recent council meeting.

The Veterans Business Council is a select group of area business leaders who volunteer as council members to help veterans in Saratoga County find employment opportunities or entrepreneurial opportunities that may fit their unique skill sets. The group supports other veterans’ agencies through fundraising efforts and information sharing about career pathways, jobs, training and business ownership in the greater Saratoga area.

The new leadership team includes: Karen Charbonneau, Chair, Saratoga Home Team of the Miranda Real Estate Group; Jason Collins, Vice Chair, veteran outreach coordinator, Office of Veteran and Military Education (OVME) at SUNY Empire State College; Michael Kennedy, Treasurer, human resources at Saratoga Bridges; Randal Hagen, Secretary, assistant vice president at Ballston Spa National Bank; Dan Colvin, Immediate Past Chair, Momentive Performance Materials; and Colonel Dave Cummings, Retired, the Chamber Board of Directors Liaison.
