What is a #YoPro? It’s a rhyming abbreviation for “Young Professional,” of course. And it’s also the newest YPN coming soon to the Metro-Detroit Area. The Millennial generation has almost completely entered the workforce and one of their many job duties may include connecting with other professionals in their area for various reasons. It could be for creating partnerships with other local companies, to raise awareness for their company, or to simply build their contact list for future professional or personal services. Our Chamber strives to add value to its members, and our membership wants to collaborate with Millennials for young, fresh ideas; therefore, the birth of #YoPro.
From July – December of 2015, #YoPro is going to hold one mixer per month for #YoPros to connect, eat, and build relationships all over Macomb County. We are hoping to establish a program beneficial for everyone and we are open to suggestions for future #YoPro events. To start, we are going to host a kickoff event to find out who is interested, ask them what they are looking for in a YPN, and from there we will evaluate the direction in which #YoPro is headed. Will there be more social events? Informational? Educational? We are leaving that up to YOU!
With that being said, please come to our first #YoPros event at Sherwood Brewing Company on Thursday, July 16th from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. For $15, you will gain admission to the #YoPros event, receive 1 drink ticket, and eat heavy appetizers while connecting with fellow #YoPros in the Metro-Detroit Area. #YoPros must be 21 or older! RSVP in advance online, via email, or give us a call! See you there!
