The MOD guideline is to increase the number of business signatories to the Armed Forces Covenant (AFC) by 10% each year. In addition to signing the Armed Forces Covenant itself, 3CDSE aims to support this by encouraging other exhibitors at 3CDSE to show their support and join us by signing the AFC on 3 February 2021.
If you would like to join us by signing the Armed Forces Covenant at the Expo on 3 February 2021, as part of which you will benefit from the attendant publicity, please contact Ellis Walby at ewalby@HCRlaw.com by 8 January 2021 to obtain a template pledge document or download below.
Please complete and return this to her by 15 January 2021, so that the pledges can be registered with the Reserve Forces and Cadets Association (RFCA) and the Employer Engagement Team in advance of the Expo.
When sending your pledge to Ellis, please also include full details of who at the Company you wish to nominate as Armed Forces Champion, together with their contact details and details of the person who will be attending the Expo in order to sign the Covenant. Please also include a full colour, high resolution PNG file of your logo, and either a 60 second video (preferably a MP4 file) or a single PowerPoint slide to provide a brief summary of your Company and why you are choosing to sign the Covenant.
In order to assist, we have included a draft pledge for you to complete. We would encourage you to ensure that your pledge is bespoke to your organisation to ensure that the support you offer to the Armed Forces Community is as strong as possible.
