CONCORD, NH (April 2022) – The Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the 2022 W. Grant McIntosh Volunteer of the Year Award recipient, Megan MacMullin, and Concord Young Professional of the Year, Erin Schaick of CATCH Neighborhood Housing. These honorees will be recognized during the 17th Annual Pinnacle Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, May 18.
The W. Grant McIntosh Volunteer of the Year award honors an individual who goes above and beyond the call of volunteerism to the Chamber, and its presentation is one of the highlights of the annual Pinnacle Awards event. This year’s recipient, Megan MacMullin, has served the Capital Area Student Leadership (CASL) Committee for 20 years. CASL is the only program of its kind in the state, giving high school sophomores the opportunity to learn about the capital city’s history and inner-workings, gain hands-on experience in public speaking and other leadership skills, and meet professionals from a variety of industries who are actively involved in the community. MacMullin played an integral role in planning and facilitating the annual CASL judicial process session day, which introduces students to local judges, prosecutors, defenders, law enforcement and corrections facility officers and clinicians who discuss their unique perspectives of the court system with students.
Erin Schaick, 2022 Concord Young Professional of the Year, will be honored for her professional excellence, commitment to the community and support of the Concord Young Professional Network (CYPN). Schaick is an integral and steadfast advocate for young people in the Granite State in both her work at CATCH Neighborhood Housing and volunteer efforts for CYPN. She has served as CYPN Steering Committee Chair and CYPN Events Coordinator, volunteering her time to plan a huge variety of events, including innovative virtual opportunities that kept the organization connected during the COVID-19 pandemic. Schaick has made rapid progress professionally—moving from Development and Marketing Assistant to Vice President, Director of Development and Community Relations at CATCH Neighborhood Housing—while volunteering for multiple causes and establishing herself as a community leader in Concord.
