BUSINESS AFTER HOURS
Monthly Business after Hours events are Franconia Notch Chamber of Commerce’s foremost networking opportunities offering members and guests the chance to meet and socialize with fellow members who represent the attractions, products, services, businesses, organizations and chamber supporters in a relaxed, social setting. Each 5 - 7 pm event provides opportunities to network and establish business to business relationships and contacts. It’s a great way to introduce new members and catch up on the latest chamber news. Hosting a BAH is an ideal way to showcase member businesses as well as establishing working and supportive relationships within the chamber organization. Typically, hosts provide hors d'oeuvres, refreshments and door prizes of their choosing. Hosts often team up with other members to co-host and share in the provisions of the events, and often invite other members to participate in any part of the BAH. Our Chamber’s "Business after Hours” are held on the third Tuesday of each month at different venues. Co-sponsored BAH dates may vary. Events marked in blue are jointly sponsored by Franconia Notch and Lincoln-Woodstock Chambers by hosts who are members of both chambers- another member benefit provided by the collaborative efforts of both chambers of commerce.
Franconia Notch Chamber of Commerce Celebrates 64rd Annual Dinner Meeting
Tuesday evening, January 10, 2012, was full of delights, surprises, a passing of the guard and an epic social event for Franconia Notch Chamber of Commerce members and guests! The entertainment provided by members and partners during the program, was an opening act to the evening entertainment provided by Juston McKinney. President Frank Grima had announced he was stepping down from the position he has held for 5 years, plus a previous year on the Board of Directors, and many attended to honor and thank him for the years of leadership that grew this chamber 300% in membership, marketing, and technology through his leadership. Following a grand social time, silent auction and packaged items for a "basket" drawing raffle, the 2012 Annual Meeting was convened by President Grima and a new slate of officers and directors was voted in unanimously. The accolades followed for our retiring president. Lead off remarks from Genral Manager John DeVivo of Franconia Notch State Park & Cannon Mt. set the pace for all to honor Frank, and appreciate his one of a kind management and leadership. The bits of experiences were peppered with humor for this man of such passion for our chamber and our region, or as Frank said himself, the best part of New Hampshire is ours! Comments followed from Mark LaClair, Executive Director of Lincoln-Woodstock CC, Dick Hamilton, President of the Old Man of the Mountain Legacy Fund, and Councilor Ray Burton with a special presentation. Executive Director Barbara Ashley presented a presidential gaveled plaque to Frank honoring his years of outstanding accomplishments, leadership and dedication. The evening was very special for President Grima and his family, as much of the entire evening's events and presentations occurred through the generosity of time and effort by so many members.
