Ticonderoga The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce is getting some help this spring thanks to North Country Community College.
The chamber has an intern from the NCCC Ticonderoga campus.
Amy LaVare will work at the chamber office until mid-May, assisting the chamber with day-to-day operations, working on projects and assisting with events.
“It has been a wonderful experience working with Matt Courtright and Molly Bechard at the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce,” LaVare said. “It truly has been a great learning experience for me. I have learned so much about what the chamber’s role is and all they do for the Ticonderoga area as well as about area businesses and visitors.”
Courtright is the chamber’s executive director. Bechard is the chamber’s visitor and member service representative/office assistant.
“I did not realize all the chamber does for the community, area businesses and the area as a whole,” Lavare added. “I would recommend to community members looking to volunteer or get involved to be part of the chamber to assist them in serving the Ticonderoga area. I plan to continue to be involved with the chamber after my internship is over.”
The internship is going so well, North Country Community College and the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce are working to continue internship partnership.
“We are thrilled to continue to strengthen the partnership between NCCC and the chamber,” Courtright said. “I enjoy working with the team at NCCC and look forward to continue working with them on the internship program as well as other possibilities.
“Amy LaVare has been an absolute pleasure to have working for the chamber,” he added. “She is a hardworking, dedicated and friendly person with wonderful customer service skills. We were honored that she was our first intern from North Country Community College here at the chamber.
“The NCCC campus in Ticonderoga is beautiful and is an asset to the community,” Courtright said. “The campus and students have many things going on and we are happy to continue to be involved in a variety of ways.”
