AID FOR EX-SERVICEMEN
ADVICE AND ASSISTANCE
A scheme based on a desire to help ex-servicemen in their business affairs and to advise them on any projected undertaking has been inaugurated by the Junior Chamber of Commerce under the auspices of its rehabilitation committee. Discussion groups are being established for returned men who have recently commenced, or are intending to commence, business for the first time on their own account. Groups will also be available to those who wish to improve their position with their present employers. The groups will be, presided over by members of the Auckland Chamber of Commerce and the tutors will comprise some of the best business brains in the city. The groups will be small, and the returned men will therefore reap the full benefit of personal contact and with practical personal help from experienced men. Trade groups in various industries will also be called on when practical problems are encountered in particular trades. It is felt that the returned man should be more than a good .tradesman to be a successful owner of a business, and it is to cover such points that are, so often neglected that the scheme has been started.
The scheme is a corollary of the Services Commercial Contact Centre, and the first full group discussions will take place to-morrow evening from 7.30 to 9.30 in the R.S.A. cafeteria. The Junior Chamber extends a cordial invitation to any returned men who are in business and have any problems they would like to discuss, or any contemplating Altering business of any kind, to attend.
