The Harford Chamber works to both foster the next generation of leaders and provide established individuals with valuable professional development opportunities.
The CONECT (Chamber Organized Network for Education and Career Training) initiative fills a community need – bringing together Harford County businesses, government organizations, and educational institutions to recruit and develop a talented workforce to lead Harford County into the future. CONECT identifies volunteer opportunities such as guest speaking and mentorship programs where the business community can offer industry expertise, as well as, internship programs for first-hand industry experience and education. Visit harfordconect.org for more information and to register as a volunteer or work-based opportunities.
