We have two important goals: To help you form lasting friendships through networking within the group, community and the Chamber of Commerce and to give back to the community through fundraising and volunteer efforts. All of this is done through several committees that work hard to make sure events are planned and volunteer projects are covered.
Luncheons/Mixers/Entertainment Committee: This committee can consist of as many YP’s as necessary to keep up with the luncheon and mixer schedule. Responsibilities include coordinating luncheons, mixers and other fun activities with restaurant and speakers.
Volunteer Committee: This committee is responsible for coordinating with local programs for the YP’s to volunteer as a group. Responsibilities include contacting various businesses and non-profit organizations within the community that are in need of group volunteers.
Public Relations Committee: This committee is responsible for communications to our members and the public. Responsibilities include assisting with press releases for the Chamber and Young Professional’s newsletters, and the Star Democrat. Assisting the Chamber’s marketing director with the newsletter and social media postings.
There is no fee to join the Young Professionals Group. Luncheons, mixers and other events may have fees. If you are between the ages of 21 and 40, or young at heart you are welcome to join us. Visit our website at www.talbotyp.org for more information and scheduled events.
