Coffee with the President,

"I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by!" -Douglas Adams

But I do love deadlines! A marketing professional such as myself has to love deadlines. We have to not only KNOW them, we must embrace them. I like to think of a deadline as my personal fan club: always there for me, cheering, guiding and happily waiting at the end of the marathon to dump sticky orange Gatorade all over me and, win or lose, congratulate me on finishing, period. 
I bring this up because this week's newsletter has a few key  deadline announcements  for advertising opportunities! Our media partners include:

Scroll along below and find one that fits your business or non-profit’s needs! And if you need help with designing your ad, reach out to one of our many talented creatives:

“A professional who doesn't deliver as committed is not just lazy, he is a liar.” 
― Amit Kalantri,  Wealth of Words

“Wasted strokes, like missed deadlines, are preventable and costly.” 

"Artistic self-indulgence is the mark of an amateur. The temptation to make scenes, to appear late, to call in sick, not to meet deadlines, not to be organized, is at heart a sign of your own insecurity and at worst the sign of an amateur." Harold Prince

Speaking of finish lines, clocks spring ahead Sunday March tenth! Getting closer!

Business After Hours:

Among the many great benefits of membership in our Tri-State Chamber of Commerce (TSC) is Business After Hours (BAH).

Held monthly, BAH offers current and potential TSC members the unique opportunity of networking in a relaxed social forum.

BAH also serves as an “open house,” wherein member Hosts have the chance to give a short, informative presentation about their business. Sometimes attendees of BAH are familiar with the Host business and sometimes it is their first introduction. Whatever the case, there is always a sharing of new information! Attendees of BAH are also given the opportunity to inform the group about events happening with their businesses.

BAH is publicized through the TSC weekly Newsletter, via direct invitation, and over social media channels. Average attendance is generally a diverse group of about 50.

Anyone is invited to become a Host, and it’s easy to do! Want to host, but don’t have a store front? Have a store front, but not a lot of time for planning? We can help partner you with a Co-Host!

To plan your BAH, contact Vice President Mary Wilbur via email or phone. You will be helped with the planning, organization and execution of your event, to whatever extent needed.

If you are planning on attending a BAH, it is imperative that you RSVP in a timely manner!!! BAH Hosts put a lot of effort into their events, and need your RSVP to plan accordingly for food and beverage.

Internship Opportunities at HVRHS Career Experience Program Unpaid Experiential Learning Program (UELP)
The Unpaid Experiential Learning Program is a CT State-sponsored and sanctioned unpaid internship
program for high school students under the age of 18. It allows them to hold unpaid internships in for-profit organizations in the community that have a significant educational benefit.

The U.S.Department of Labor and the courts have created strict criteria for legally permitting an unpaid internship in a for-profit entity. (This applies to college internships as well.) The UELP Program helps to ensure those criteria are met and creates the platform for a work-based educational experience for high school students. Non-profit and civic organizations are exempt from this criteria. The DOL does not want to inhibit volunteer or civic engagement in the community. Read More!

While one-day job shadows are a perfect vehicle to introduce a student to a job or career, internships are a longer-term way for our students to build skills, connect to curriculum, and establish connections in the local community with caring adults working in all kinds of careers. Read more!
