This year has brought so many challenges in both our professional and personal lives. However, it has also provided us an opportunity (read: forced us) to re-think how we are doing things. In doing so, we've decided to completely restructure how our Young Professionals program works. There is a lot of talent on our roster, and the new model gives us a chance to better utilize the skills of our members!
What is changing?
Instead of just a few people serving on a "steering committee" trying to plan events, all YPs can now choose one break-out committee to join.
What are the benefits of this change?
We will have a much more well-rounded program (more events and greater variety), planned in a more efficient way!
The best news?
Each committee can stay focused and accomplish their goals, because no one is stretched too thin. *high five*
New Break-Out Committees include:

Fifteen individuals have been selected to the 2019 class of Outstanding Young Professionals, sponsored by The Missourian and the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce. The selection committee continues to receive many excellent nominations, making the job of selection tougher each year! Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit a nomination, and an extra "kudos" to the young professionals in the area that continue to embrace Washington's "service leadership" model of volunteerism!
The Chamber's Young Professionals group is being re-launched!
A Happy Hour networking event will be held Thursday, October 25 at Otis Campbell's (216 W Front Street, Washington). Mayor Sandy Lucy will welcome the group, but there is no formal program.
Don't forget to bring business cards to share, plus one to enter in our door prize drawing!
