Jennifer Therrien – Uptown Screen on the Green: Check!

It has been a busy couple of weeks here at the Chamber of Commerce. One of the main projects I was working on was stuff for the BIG event Uptown Screen on the Green. One of the ways I helped out for this event was by making name-tags for all of the VIP guests attending. I never realized how much goes in to making something as simple as a name tag. Each company had one and so did each person attending. The name-tags of people had people like Mayor Tomlinson and Mike Gaymon on the list.

Who knew name tags would be such a time consuming job. I am starting to realize all the little things that go on behind the scenes in order for a event to take place. There is so much more than I ever thought.

The Screen on the Green name-tags turned out to be a success!

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!
