Chamber of Commerce offers Summer Intern Connections program

• May 11, 2016 at 4:00 PM

The Chamber of Commerce Grand Haven-Spring Lake-Ferrysburg has opened registration for its 2016 Summer Intern Connections Program.

The program is a series of events where interns can learn about Northwest Ottawa County, connect with other interns and meet area employers. Interns will gain knowledge of how to build strong business relationships, navigate our community, learn the rich history of our area, give back via a service project and network with the Young Professionals in our area.

The 2016 schedule includes:

June 1: a Communication/Relationship Luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Rich Lohman of Woohooing will make a presentation on relationships and provide the “10 Rules to Relationships,” the “Relationship Inventory Tool” and simple action steps to communicate more effectively.

June 21: a Community Trolley Tour and Pizza Dinner from 3:30-6 p.m. at The Kirby House. The interns will receive a tour of the area, learn points of interest, go on a scavenger hunt and have a pizza dinner.

In July, there will be three events: a Stewardship/Community Service Project with a non-profit organization in Grand Haven; a Business Development Breakfast and Workshop led by Cindy Brown; and a breakfast with the Grand Haven Young Professionals, with time to network and discuss being a young professional in our community.

In August, the interns will have the opportunity to learn about the Coast Guard and its significance to Grand Haven. In addition, they’ll have the option to attend a Coast Guard Festival event at Waterfront Stadium.

To register your company’s interns or obtain more information, contact Nancy Manglos at nmanglos@grandhavenchamber.org.
