Do You Employ A Military Spouse? Invite Them To Join US For Lunch



On Thursday, Nov. 8, the inaugural Spouses in Military (SiM) Conference will be presented by Piedmont Natural Gas in association with the Military Affairs Council of the Greater Fayetteville Chamber. This day-long event will run from 9AM – 3PM at the Kiwanis Rec Center, 352 Devers St., in Fayetteville near FTCC. We can accommodate 300 or more spouses.


The conference’s purpose is to provide a program for military spouses of active-duty personnel which will acquaint them with the Fayetteville/Cumberland area and its offerings; and offer a motivational luncheon speaker to promote self-esteem and encouragement.


Business and Non-Profit Expo – Military spouses (male or female) can come at any point throughout the day to visit display booths of local restaurants and retailers to learn about their products and services – booths will offer coupons, free samples and giveaways. There will also be an area for non-profit resources such as education, social services, healthcare, workforce development and other resources available to them. Vendor booths can be purchased online at


Chamber Members – This is your opportunity to showcase your business to military families in our community. Plus, as a Chamber member, you get $100 off the cost of your vendor.


Luncheon – Spouses can also attend a luncheon free of charge where they can mingle with each other and with members of the Military Affairs Council. Our keynote speaker is Wesley Bauguess, an author, former active-duty soldier and military widow, who will talk about self-esteem, encouragement, and engagement in the community and with one another. Registration is limited to members of the Military Affairs Council and is required, with availability on a first-come basis due to limited seating capacity.
