Londonderry launches young professionals group

The Greater Derry Londonderry Young Professionals will launch on Sept. 17, the Greater Derry Londonderry Chamber of Commerce announced Wednesday.

The program, sponsored by Triangle Credit Union, is designed to be a resource to the twenty-something and thirty-somethings in the greater Derry and Londonderry region.


The first event will be a trivia night, hosted by La Carreta Restaurant in Derry. Each event will focus on one of the following elements: building professional relationships; continuing education and skills development; networking and business development; and team building and social interactions.


"As many of these young business men and women are still working to pay back school loans, our goal is to never charge a fee for participation," Stacey Bruzzese, executive director, said in a statement.


More information about the chamber can be found at www.GDLChamber.org. Questions and event registrations can be made by telephone, 432-8205, or email, Cristen@GDLChamber.org.




Group touts trade impact for NH

WASHINGTON — International trade supports an estimated 181,000 jobs in New Hampshire and generated $3.4 billion in goods exports in 2012, according to a new state-by-state analysis by the Business Roundtable.


According to the trade group's report:

• New Hampshire's trade-related employment grew 26 percent, while total job growth stagnated, from 2004 to 2011.

• New Hampshire's goods exports have grown more than three times faster than state GDP since 2002.


• Eighty-nine percent of New Hampshire exporters are small- and medium-sized companies with fewer than 500 workers.

• U.S. trade with free trade agreement (FTA) partner countries has led to export growth, and since 2002, New Hampshire's goods exports to FTA partners have increased by 111 percent. In 2012, $1.5 billion of New Hampshire's goods exports, or 43 percent, went to FTA partners.

AIRMAR awarded grant for lightning sensor

DURHAM — AIRMAR Technology Corp., a Milford-based manufacturer of electronic sensors, is collaborating with Plymouth State University Professor of Meteorology James Koermer to prove the viability and effectiveness of a portable lightning sensor that would accurately detect and measure the lightning type, direction and range to an atmospheric lightning event.


The collaboration is made possible by a Granite State Technology Innovation Grant from the NH Innovation Research Center to support projects under development in the private sector.

Projects vary from proof-of-concept to a substantial product or process design. Companies are required to provide matching dollars or services in an effort to improve leverage of NHIRC dollars.


The NHIRC was created in 1991 by the New Hampshire Legislature to support innovations through industry and university collaborations.

A request for proposals is now open and will fund 12-month projects beginning January 1, 2014.
