About ORP

Objective Rally Point (ORP) when used in military strategy is the point where a patrol halts in order to make final preparations for the actions on its objective.

Our networking events are based upon the spirit of this military tactic, yet in business instead of the battlefield. ORP is a place for Veterans to assemble and prepare for the objective of starting and growing successful business with the help and support of other Veterans.

ORP provides Veterans with the information and resources available in the Veteran business community that they need to maximize their opportunities.

ORP is hosted by Lee Dougherty, a service connected disabled Veteran with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan who is a Partner at the law firm of Effectus, PLLC where he practices Government Contract Law .

ORP creates connections for Veterans to work together through referrals, teaming arrangements, business relationships, employment opportunities and networking. We bring the camaraderie that we found in the military to the business world

ORP also offers a unique forum where government contractors looking for VOSBs and SDVOSBs to team with can connect with companies on a monthly basis. If you are looking for a Veteran owned business to team with you are encouraged to attend.

The focus is on networking but we have a speaker each month to provide inspiration and education.
