A brand new network is emerging for young professionals in northern New Hampshire. The North of the Notch YP Network (NNN) was formed recently with the leadership of North Country Listens Project Coordinator, Courtney Wrigley, who helped to pull together interested core members to champion the new group. After a year’s worth of focus group meetings & casual gatherings, it was identified that a need and interest existed to connect 20-40 year olds to create social, professional and recreational opportunities. NNN aims to host gatherings in Coös County and northern Grafton County to support opportunities for this demographic.
The overall goal or (working) mission is to bring early-career adults together to build a vibrant social and professional community in the Great North Woods by hosting events and also creating a digitally visible community through social media.
Please consider supporting this emerging effort as we get started by:
- Spreading the word – share this information with a friend, a business looking to attract and retain young workers, or a community leader in northern New Hampshire.
- Liking us on Facebook – North of the Notch YP Network to stay updated and invite friends and your work organizations too.
- Joining the North of the Notch YP Network group on LinkedIn
An AMC Lonesome Lake Hut Trip was held on April 10th, serving as the kick off event for spring. More gatherings are in the works for this group. For more information or questions about the North of the Notch YP Network, please email Courtney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
