2nd Annual New Hampton Career Fair

Posted: Tue, January 21, 2014

Join us for our 2nd Annual New Hampton Career Fair!

We would like to have your participation in the New Hampton Career Fair.  The career fair will be held on Wednesday, March 5, 2014 at New Hampton High School gym.  The career fair will run from 9-11 am; noon - 2 pm.  You may begin setting up at 8 am.  Please be there and setup by 9 am as that is when students will arrive.  The high school will provide tables but you are welcome to bring any equipment/supplies you have of your own.  We encourage each employer to bring a handout that has all the employment positions you have at your place of business and if there is any schooling/training needed to obtain these jobs.  Attached are a couple examples.

Each class, 8th - 11th will have a scheduled time to attend the career fair.  It will be mandatory that every student (325 students) attend.  We have also invited Turkey Valley, Sumner-Fredericksburg, and Riceville high school students to join us.  Students will be required to talk with 2-3 employers and fill out a worksheet about what they learned. 

We would like to achieve the following:

o    Give area businesses the opportunity to give an overview of what their business entails to students.

o    Give area businesses the opportunity to recruit summer interns (if applicable)

o    Give area businesses the opportunity to inform students of employment opportunities in New Hampton with a high school degree, 2 year degree, or 4 year degree

o    Identify skills necessary for general employment and specific careers

o    Identify education (high school/post secondary) necessary for general employment and specific careers

This is your opportunity to get students to return to New Hampton after graduating from college.

We think this would be a great opportunity for our students to see and hear about what the New Hampton Business Community has to offer.

Please let Megan or Tammy know by Friday, February 28, 2014 (at the phone number or email below) if you will be taking advantage of this opportunity!

New Hampton Municipal Light Plant & New Hampton Economic Development Honored with Economic Development Impact Award

Posted: Thu, March 21, 2019
Iowa's rural electric cooperatives and municipal utilities commitment goes far beyond ensuring safe, reliable, affordable, and environmentally responsible energy. They actively create strategic partnerships and provide technical and financial assistance to support business growth and community vitality. Annually, Iowa Area Development Group (IADG) presents Impact Awards to utility partners who were involved in significant economic development initiatives the prior year. During a meeting of the New Hampton Industrial Development Corporation, the New Hampton Municipal Light Plant & New Hampton Economic Development was recognized for their economic development accomplishments and commitment to the community.  

New Hampton Municipal Light Plant & New Hampton Economic Development was presented with an IADG Impact Award for community development. New Hampton Municipal Light Plant & New Hampton Economic Development has supported economic development in the community for many years. A recent example of project participation includes support for the $6 million facility renovation project for the Mercy One - New Hampton Medical Center. This upgrade provides improved health care, better patient privacy, new technology, and a renovated emergency department. All combined, these increased capabilities will provide much needed health care infrastructure for the community, its employers and residents. New Hampton Municipal Light Plant & New Hampton Economic Development secured a $300,000 grant from the USDA Rural Economic Development Loan & Grant program to support this project. New Hampton Municipal Light Plant provided an additional $60,000 in matching funds. Receiving this USDA grant also established a Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) for the New Hampton Municipal Light Plant & Economic Development Office. The loan repayments will go into this newly established RLF and be available to support additional local projects for years to come.
 
"We commend Brian Quirk and the New Hampton Municipal Light Plant as well as Tammy Robinson and the New Hampton Economic Development Office for their steadfast support of business and community development," said IADG President, Rand Fisher. "They are providing important technical and financial assistance that many times is a key component in successfully securing projects that create jobs and support community vitality.
