Cairns veteran Business network
The Cairns Veteran Business Network (CVBN) was establishing in February 2020 to identify owned and operated businesses of Veterans, as well as those that support Our Defence Family through positive employment practices of Veterans, to enable us to grow ‘Stronger Together’.
We are trying to reach out to the many Veteran Businesses and Veteran friendly businesses (those that continually employ at least one Veteran) that exist within the Cairns Council area.
