GIACC announces a new type of event designed to interest University students as well as GIACC Members. The topic has been chosen with a great deal of care, as have been the Panelists, to ensure a subject of interest to all. The objective of the event is to introduce students, mostly from GA Tech and mostly from the Indian Association there, to the GIACC, and the GAICC members to the students. It is intended as a pilot, allowing the students and members to network at the Reception after the Discussion, and both parties to explore the potential for further relationships beyond the Chamber, such as Internships. Directors of Human Resources are included in the panel so the members and students alike can discuss their needs with them as well.
It is hoped that from this event a GIACC student membership will be developed with a student committee and ambassadors for the chamber. Students would be able to recommend activities and have an ex officio seat on the GIACC Board. This will be a most interesting, and probably eye-opening, event and we strongly encourage all members to take part.
