The Greater Richmond Chamber, in partnership with the University of Richmond and Virginia Commonwealth University, recently launched RVAIntern.com, a website through which businesses in the Richmond region can recruit qualified interns from colleges and universities in Central Virginia.
The one-stop site allows employers to submit their internship needs simultaneously to seven schools. Prior to the site's launch, businesses had to visit the websites of each of the seven participating schools to post opportunities to each one.

UPDATE: JUNE 17, 10 A.M. – A longtime Henrico teacher and a Glen Allen dentist will compete in a special election this November for the right to serve the final year of a four-year term on the Henrico County School Board, after the interim representative failed to submit enough acceptable signatures to appear on the ballot.
Short Pump Elementary School intervention teacher Michelle “Micky” Ogburn and Glen Allen dentist Surya P. Dhakar are seeking to serve the final year of the Three Chopt District board seat that Diana Winston won in 2011 and from which she resigned last August. They will face each other in a Nov. 4 election.
The interim Three Chopt District board member, attorney Robert G. Boyle, Jr. (who was appointed by the board in October) fell four signatures short of qualifying for the ballot, when Henrico Registrar Mark Coakley's office disallowed 57 of the 178 signatures he included with his filing.
