Do you have a unique story about why you choose to live and work in Manchester? The Greater Manchester of Chamber of Commerce wants to hear from you.

It's no secret the Granite State is facing a significant labor shortage and the Queen City is not immune. 

The results of last year's Stay Work Play NH survey of why millennials leave the state shocked a lot of people.  But New Hampshire employers paid attention and the business community is trying to respond. 

If you are a young professional who currently lives and works in Manchester or is planning to move here, the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce & the Manchester Young Professionals Network want to hear your story. 

  • Did you grow up in New Hampshire?

  • Did a job bring you here?

They want to know what brought you to Manchester and why you're happy to stay.

To share your story, please visit the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce.

On the strictly business side we have Gold Star Referral Club on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 8:30 AM and Alpha Loft's Startup Meetup at noon on Wednesday.

Even the non-business activities are a little thin, but if you don't mind looking beyond Manchester the Meeting & Greeting in So. New Hampshire & the Merrimack Valley is definitely worth a look. Not only do they have the regular Tuesday Bowling at Spare Time on Maple Street, but they have a wide variety of events in and around southern New Hampshire this weekend.
