Chamber launches new student membership program

Back To Our Blog

We’re thrilled to launch a new membership option for students who are interested in building a professional network in the Greater Concord region. We know that local businesses are struggling to recruit and retain employees, so we’re proud to add this program to our list of workforce development initiatives. (Learn more about these efforts at concordnhchamber.com/workforce-development.) This new membership option is primarily geared toward college students. With an annual rate of $75, it offers outstanding benefits for an affordable price. Students will receive all of the same benefits as a regular Chamber member—member-to-member discounts, networking event invitations, professional development opportunities, local and statewide advocacy and much more—but will not be listed in our online or printed directory.

We’d like to extend a special welcome to our very first student member, Michael Walsh, a graduate student of the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College. “This fall, I started to think seriously about my long-term career ambitions,” said Walsh. “I want to remain in the northern New England region when I graduate next year." Walsh continued, "After going to a couple of career fairs, I started to realize that they were mostly geared towards out-of-state employers from major markets like New York, San Francisco, and Washington. If I wanted to find a way to remain in the Northern New England Region, I realized that I needed to look for other opportunities to increase my visibility with local employers. That is what led me to explore student membership with the Greater Chamber of Commerce.” Walsh is excited to grow his network with community leaders through the Chamber, and pursue some professional development opportunities. For more information about student membership, reach out to Gabe at membership@concordnhchamber.com or call (603) 224-2508.

Incorporated in 1919, New Hampshire's state capital chamber of commerce—the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce—develops economic opportunities, strengthens the business climate and enhances quality of life in the Capital region.
