WHAT IS YOUNG PROFESSIONALS?
Young Professionals is a group for individuals (member & non-member) ages 21-40. The Young Professionals meet regularly to connect with each other, learn about the community, develop their leadership skills, and give back through volunteering opportunities. It is a great way to meet other like-minded individuals dedicated to developing further in their personal and professional life!
Our goal is to create a vibrant, growing business climate through attracting, retaining and preparing the region’s next generation of business leaders and community decision-makers through this group. As a Young Professional, you have the ability to recieve our YP E-Newsletters, join the private YP Facebook Page, and recieve notices of our events.
