The Veterans Business Council Announces New Officers for 2020

SARATOGA COUNTY — The Saratoga County Foundation’s Veterans Business Council recently elected a new slate of officers for the 2020 year. Elected for a two-year term were Jason Collins, from SUNY Empire State College, as Chair, Erica Choi, from Bank of America, as Vice-Chair, Robert Scheurer, from Adirondack Trust Company, as Secretary, and Tom Dingley, from Mosaic Wealth Advisory, as Treasurer.

Outgoing Chair Karen Charbonneau, from Saratoga Home Team, was recognized by the VBC for her outstanding leadership the past two years as the Chair of the volunteer group of Veterans. During her time as Chair, the Veterans Business Council helped to coordinate funding and construction of a 7,700 square foot field house at the Naval Support Activity Base in Saratoga Springs, implemented a new scholarship program to aid Veterans pursuing higher education and established a new fundraiser to help raise money for Veterans initiatives in Saratoga County, among many other efforts to assist Veterans that the VBC undertakes.

The Veterans Business Council operates under the Saratoga County Foundation of the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, and is made up of a select group of Veterans who are business leaders in the region. The Veterans Business Council works to facilitate opportunities for military veterans residing in Saratoga County, including offering scholarship opportunities and connecting them with the business community to enhance their knowledge of employment opportunities, job or entrepreneurial training, and new business development.
