• 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.  


  • When Does this Group Meet?

    The Young Professionals Affinity Group meets roughly once a month. We intentionally switch up our times to accomodate everyone's busy schedules. Friday nights out, morning/coffee get togethers, lunch time museum walks, etc. 

    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.

    Want Regular Updates?

    If you'd like to get involved and receive regular updates on the Young Professionals, just send an email to our Chamber Special Events Manager, Tasha Carlisle at tcarlisle@oprfchamber.org to get added to our mailing list!
