Chamber offers student membership program
DERRY — The Greater Derry Londonderry Chamber of Commerce announces its Student Membership Program, a new initiative that provides access to networking opportunities, introductions to area businesses and expanded internship possibilities.
The Student Membership Program grew from a proposal by the Chamber’s own intern, Ashley Theobald, a senior at UNH Manchester. She presented the idea to Elizabeth Altvater, Chamber Membership Director, and they worked together to expand the program.
“This type of program is missing in our region,” said Greater Derry Londonderry Chamber of Commerce President Ashley Haseltine. “Networking allows future graduates to build their relationships with the region’s employers, look for internships and expand their professional connections.”
Any college student or interested high school student located in the region can join. Individuals receive access to all Chamber networking events, introductions to regional businesses, interview preparation and more. Interested students can contact Elizabeth Altvater at firstname.lastname@example.org from a valid school email address to join.
The Student Membership Program will continue throughout the spring semester and include select opportunities later this year. The Chamber also extends appreciation to several members supporting students with professional headshots, business coaching, interview preparation, job shadowing and more.
