Just a day after two Young Professionals League members received awards at the Chamber of Commerce dinner, the group of young business people continued their goal of assisting its members by holding a networking lunch during their monthly meeting Friday.
The April meeting gave attendees an opportunity to mingle with other young business members of the community to learn about their personal and professional lives through a group activity. Participants expressed their appreciation at the opportunity to get to know each other better and build those networking ties.
With the April meeting completing the first cycle of meetings, the YPL will begin the new quarter in May, with their meeting focusing on leadership building exercises before hearing from a guest speaker on a relevant topic the following month.
The YPL also holds a monthly social gathering the third Friday of each month. On April 15, young professionals will be gathering at Nate’s Place after working hours to socialize in a more relaxed setting.
Members are also encouraged to be involved in the community, such as by volunteering to help with the Beacon Soup Line in the fall or the High School Career Day. Community service hours outside of work can be turned in to the YPL, which will keep a tally of the total number of hours for the individuals and the group as a whole.
Young professionals interested in joining the organization are encouraged to attend the meetings or social events. Yearly dues are currently being accepted from both new and returning members.
