Employment meeting set

TICONDEROGA - The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce will host an open house with Adirondack Employment Opportunities on Thursday, Jan. 27, at 5:30 p.m.

The open house will be held at the TACC office located at 94 Montcalm St., Suite 1 in downtown Ticonderoga. Complimentary snacks and refreshments will be served.

Adirondack Employment Opportunities provides skilled, no cost job placement and retentions services to businesses and other organizations.

"Recruiting people with diverse backgrounds and different abilities opens up many more opportunities to hire the right person for the job," explained Director of Consumer and Business Outreach Marsha Lazarus of the Mental Health Association in New York State. "Studies show that people with disabilities are a loyal and hardworking class of individuals. Think beyond the label and do not be fooled by the term disability."

Out of 120 million employed Americans including executives, machine operations, managers, sales workers, mechanics, teachers, accountants, and health care workers, 16 million have a disability.

"The Mental Health Association in Essex County, Inc., including the Adirondack Employment Opportunities program, is a new chamber member," stated TACC Executive Director Matthew Courtright. "We look forward to giving area business this opportunity to learn more about this program and all that the organization can offer including valuable placement services available free of charge to area businesses."

Staff from Adirondack Employment Opportunities will give a short presentation on the program and how they can work with and support area businesses.
