Fife Chamber Signs Armed Forces Covenant
Wednesday, 12 October 2016
Fife Chamber was proud to announce their ongoing support of Veterans, Reservists, Cadets and the wider Armed Forces community by signing the Armed Forces Covenant at a business breakfast event held at the Old Course in St. Andrews during the Dunhill Links Golf Championship.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a UK Government initiative to acknowledge the contribution made to the country by the Armed Forces through their unique skills and sacrifices.
The Chamber pledged to recognise and support the unique business value that military personnel and their families can contribute to both the Chamber itself and wider society.
Fife Chamber Board Member John Silcock said: “Our signing of the covenant lays out in writing our clear commitment to providing opportunities for military and associated personnel within the organisation, and to extending our support further by encouraging the Chamber’s business members to do the same.”
The Covenant was signed by John Silcock, on behalf of Fife Chamber, and by Captain Chris Smith, Naval Regional Commander for Scotland & Northern Ireland, on behalf of the Ministry of Defence.
Fife Chamber works to contribute positively to the Fife economy by representing its members’ interests, engaging with businesses of all types, identifying and debating issues affecting the Fife economy and lobbying locally and nationally to help resolve business concerns.
