CCA Announces Launch of Metro DC Chapter of NMCBN
The Metro DC chapter of the National Marine Corps Business Network has been established. The first of its kind on the east coast, the NMCBN is a network of former Marines in business, dedicated to doing business with each other while upholding the standards so familiar to all Marines – Honor and Semper Fidelis – Always Faithful.
“We are a professional business organization of Marines,” said Christopher Moline, of Alexandria Carpet One & Commercial Carpets of America, and also the former chapter president, “We trust each other with our lives, we trust each other with our business. Marines doing business with Marines is what NMCBN is all about.”
Those familiar with Marines and the Marine Corps, are also familiar with the Core Values – Honor, Courage & Commitment.
Marines act responsibly in a mature and dependable manner. They are held to the highest standard of ethical and moral behavior. In the Marines, honesty, honor, and respect for oneself and others is built into our very foundation.
Courage is not the absence of fear. It is the ability to face fear and overcome it. It is the mental, moral, and physical strength that is ingrained in Marines. It carries them through every challenge, and aids them in facing the unknown.
Commitment is what compels Marines to serve our country and the Corps. It is what drives them to face every mission head-on, and win our nation’s battles.
The National Marine Corps Business Network attracts Marines who have left the Corps and started a career in business. The network consists of business owners, sales reps and executives that benefit from networking with one another. Marines transitioning from active duty to the business world can use the network to post resumes and find employment with member business owners, managers, etc. Initially, the chapter will meet at a predetermined location for lunch once a month.
