The Massachusetts Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), in conjunction with Detachment 1, 379th Engineer Company, will host “Breakfast with the Boss,” 7-9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16 at the Massachusetts Army National Guard Armory in Pittsfield.
The event is part of ESGR’s Employer Outreach Program. While employers of National Guard and Reserve personnel are specifically requested to attend this free event, the breakfast is open to all employers and civic leaders.
“It’s important for the employer to know the expectations for the employee and vice versa,” said Jim Clark, the city’s Director of Veterans’ Services. “It’s really about communication.”
The gathering will allow attendees to tour the armory and meet with military personnel and ESGR members in an informal setting; learn more about the military duties of reserve force members; and also provides a forum for employers to express their support for this vital work.
The armory is located at 161 Vin Hebert Boulevard. Please RSVP by Sept. 9 by contacting either Bill Hebert at 413.348.5195 or Clark at 413.499.9435.
