Q & A with Jocelyn Lencki

What is an aspect of the Chamber’s work that you think is critical to the success of the community?

The GMCC supports several workforce development initiatives focused on keeping young professionals in our community. Our workforce development initiatives include programming with the Manchester Young Professionals Network, collaboration with the Manchester School District, unifying nonprofit efforts, and aligning training programs to meet the workforce needs of Manchester area businesses.

What place would you recommend people visit if they were new to Manchester or the region?

If you’re a foodie like me I would recommend taking advantage of the greater Manchester area microbreweries and other fine dining experiences like Cabonnay. The atmosphere ranges from fun, high energy to romantic. If you ever want to see a show, The Palace Theatre is right downtown!

What is unique about your role at the Chamber?

My role is unique because of the many touch points I have with our members, from database updates to event assistance. I will be focusing on supporting and further developing our programming, along with member relations functions to enhance the overall member experience at the Chamber!
