As a Chamber of Commerce, there is clearly a link between the MHACCCA and students in the field of Commerce, Business and Management. Our focus on growing the local economy should be of interest and practical experience for the Student. The position will also give the Student the opportunity to meet and engage current business owners, networking opportunities they may not realize in other work terms.
Our new Community Development Plan will be of significant benefit to any student of the Community Planning and Design-related fields of study. The Student will have the opportunity to work closely with the community leaders who are turning the ideas into action, with hands-on participation in a process that will be an unparalleled student experience.
