The Montgomery County Chamber Community Foundation (MCCCF) annual VIP Foundation Golf Tournament is the major fundraiser supporting the Veteran Institute for Procurement (VIP) program. VIP is the nation’s first-ever program to train veteran service-disabled and veteran owned small businesses to succeed in the federal contracting market. This 3-day, 27-hour comprehensive certification program is designed to equip veteran businesses to increase their ability to win government contracts. Funded entirely by the Montgomery County Chamber Community Foundation and VIP Sponsors, the Institute is offered at no cost to participants. Donations are required to sustain and expand VIP to meet the needs of veteran-owned businesses, VIP alumni and the growing community of veterans seeking jobs. ISS is a 2010 graduate of the program. The company’s CEO, Ms. Linda Houk, became a Foundation Board Member in 2012.
