Jennifer Therrien – Another day at the Chamber

Young Professionals of the Greater Columbus GA Chamber of Commerce

As I enter into my second week at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce, I realize how much I enjoy it here.  It has been busy at the Chamber with lots of exciting events going on and coming up. One of the events coming up is an event put on by the Young Professionals.  Let me tell you a little bit about the Young Professionals program at the Chamber. This is a program committed to shaping the future of Columbus through community involvement. Basically this is a program that encourages and engages young professionals in our region with lots of opportunities.

One of the big events coming up is the Uptown Screen on the Green . This is an event that invites people from the community to come out and watch a recent summer blockbuster on a 72-foot full size outdoor movie screen on the lawn! This takes place behind Columbus State University’s RiverPark Campus. Not only will there be a movie, but also a band by the name of Sol Cat. Everyone of all ages is invited to come and experience this event. Local food and beverages will be available for purchase.

Since this event is just around the corner there is a lot of stuff to be done before hand. One of the things I worked on the last couple of days was a news release for this event.  It was exciting to be able to create a real news release for an actual event. I can’t wait to write more!


Cory Veal- And the tasks continue

This previous week at the Boys & Girls Club I was able to learn that I have been offered and opportunity to stay during the summer. I have been assigned to assist with another major event taking place early September.

I have been working on creating newsletters and more for the clubs website and our Facebook page. We are on the path of re-branding ourselves in the community and we are currently going in the right direction. It is very important to maintain a good social presence so people can see what good you are actually doing. Our Facebook activity has skyrocketed since we decided to update it keep current content on it.
