Groups: Young Professionals
All young (and young-identifying!) members of the OPRF Chamber are invited to join this group. We share experiences, meet people facing similar career issues and discuss areas of professional development.
Connecting business to business and business to community. Get to know us in 2019 and make an impact on your business.
When Does this Group Meet?
- MONTHLY PROGRAMMING: Most 3rd Thursdays from 8:30 - 10 am, we hold a professional development breakfast meetup at a local restaurant or coffee shop with a featured speaker.
- EVENING EVENTS: Roughly quarterly, we substitute a fun evening event - happy hour, a tour of a fun destination, or partnering with a local nonprofit on a fundraiser.
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.
Want Regular Updates?
If you'd like to get involved and receive regular updates on what the Young Professionals are up to, just send an email to Mark Walden (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get added to our mailing list!
Meet the Leaders!
It takes a lot of people to coordinate this group and all that we do.
