This week I’d like to share with you a special event that our vibrant group of young professionals is planning. The Bonita Springs Area Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals are gearing up for their 2016 “In Your Future” Summit, as a follow up to their inaugural event in 2015 which was a roaring success. The theme, “In Your Future,” relates to developing a YP’s personal and professional future, as well as how they can be proactive and influence positive growth in our regional community. The goal is to get their eyes trained on the future, and to talk about how they can engage and become better leaders, managers, community builders and collaborators!
On Wednesday, June 22, 2016 from 12:30 to 7:00 p.m. young professionals will engage in a multitude of leadership activities at Florida Gulf Coast University’s Cohen Center. From 12:30 to 5:00 p.m., over 250 future leaders will come together, with career and community growth in mind, to be energized by dynamic speakers, breakout sessions, and networking breaks. After an afternoon of eye-opening advice and invigorating conversations, the event will unwind with two hours of networking, a.k.a., “Schmoozapalooza,” from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Attendees will enjoy cocktails and appetizers while building their professional network with fellow career-oriented YPs!
I am thrilled about this exciting program and know that the young professionals who attend will benefit immensely. To purchase tickets or sponsorships for this event, visit www.BonitaSpringsChamber.com/events or call us at (239) 992-2943.
