• Groups: FLEX: Future Leaders Exchange

    (formerly Young Professionals)

  • Welcome to the FLEX Affinity Group, an exciting initiative within the OPRF Chamber dedicated to nurturing the aspirations of emerging leaders and entrepreneurs. FLEX, an acronym for Future Leaders Exchange, embodies the dynamic spirit of this group, creating a vibrant space for individuals embarking on their business and leadership journey.


    Whether you're launching your own venture or climbing the “corporate” ladder, FLEX is the platform to exchange ideas, foster connections, and pave the way for a successful future. 


    FLEX is open to ANY Employee of a member business!

  • When Does this Group Meet?

    FLEX will be making a splash in 2024! We've got an incredible list of events planned! Typically speaking our meeting will be the third or fourth Wednesday of the month! FLEX offers a diverse set of times to accommodate as many of its constituents as possible. 

    Where Does this Group Meet?

    All over the community! The mission of this group is to get out of the office, see what's new and have fun so there is no set meeting place. Keep a keen eye on the Chamber's Community Calendar for specific locations.
