Join members from the Lincoln Woodstock, Littleton Area, Franconia, Central NH, and Mt Washington Valley Chambers of Commerce as well as North of the Notch YP Network for the 2nd annual White Mountains Young Professionals Summit, “Building the Millennial Community in Northern NH”, hosted in Littleton, New Hampshire on Tuesday October 27, 2015.
A full day event is planned to take place at various locations along Main Street in Littleton, showcasing all that this unique, North Country setting has to offer. The event provides an opportunity for young professionals in northern NH to gather together to make new connections, learn relevant skills or new information, and to build a community of young professionals who celebrate living and working in the northern region of NH. This year’s summit is organized by area young professionals to be a fun and interactive event. Feature sessions include Seasoning the Entrepreneur, Civic Bootcamp, Outdoor Recreation and Community Benefits, among others. The afternoon Think Tank Picnic will encourage attendees to explore and develop big ideas to build the Northern NH community and What’s the Buzz beer tasting will cap off the day.
