When you learn about a job opportunity in the defense sector, such as a position that comes open with your company, you send me the title, organization, location, and a brief description; link; or contact information, and I’ll share.  This is a cooperative network.  That means everyone’s participation is required to provide job opportunities to share.

 

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

***  MCR DC Metro Charity Golf Outing

The 3rd Annual MCR DC Metro Charity Golf Outing is planned for Friday, October 9, 2015 at the South Riding Golf Club, South Riding, Virginia.  Like our sister MCR charity event in New England, all proceeds go to charities with local ties.  This year, our employee committee has once again chosen to support the Wounded Warrior Project. Last year we were able to donate $9,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project. This year we want to exceed that amount and give more than $10,000!  That is why everyone is welcome to play, donate cash or raffle items, sponsor a hole, or volunteer their time. Besides supporting a great cause, it is a wonderful networking event. You can register to play or make payments and donations using your credit card or Pay Pal account, or just get more information at our website  (http://bd.mcri.com/golf//).

This year we are proud to announce that the Golf Outing Committee has teamed with “Salute Military Golf Associates” or SMGA.  SMGA, a non-profit charity, provides rehabilitative golf experiences for post 9/11 Wounded Warriors and their families.  As part of this relationship we are asking for donations to sponsor SMGA participation.  Your donation will give an eligible veteran the chance to play golf and enjoy the outing event with supporters and friends.  If you would like to sponsor a SMGA player, simply enter “SMGA” in the name field on the web-based registration form, select “Player” in the dropdown box, and add your contact information.

If you have any questions please contract Gary Rogers at grogers@mcri.com.
