Mission chamber partners with UFV Alumni Association

A one-year free membership into the Mission chamber is offered to graduating UFV students

A partnership between the chamber of commerce and UFV Alumni Association aims to connect new graduates with business professionals to help find that all-important first job.

“This partnership allows us to continue to support education and help students and alumni reach their full social, professional, and networking potential. The chamber will benefit by gaining access to new, eager and young members,” said Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce president Sean Melia.

The 120-year-old organization will offer preferred membership status to new graduates of the University of the Fraser Valley, giving them a one-year membership for free.

At the May 16 chamber luncheon, Tony Luck, chair of the UFV Alumni Association, and Melia signed the official agreement that will launch this program.

“This special partnership means the Alumni Association can honour its mandate of offering beneficial programs to our alumni, while providing growth opportunities for our young graduates,” said Luck. “Our young alumni will have access to rich networking opportunities when they need it most — right after graduation. Partnerships like these provide the alumni association with an important connection to our community as well.”
