*NEW* for 2017, the Brockville & District Chamber of Commerce would like to keep our members up to date by providing you with a monthly blog. For our first submission, we would like to highlight our Young Professionals Network with a brief overview of 2016 and a snapshot of what's ahead.
Looking back on 2016, I can't help but be inspired and so proud of what the Brockville Young Professionals Network accomplished.
Although it has expanded and branched off into its own entity, the YPN is proud to support and be involved in the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend! We are so proud of what the weekend accomplished in 2016 - the success of the second annual tournament; the alumni game; and the top ten spot in Kraft Hockeyville all supported the continued improvements to Rotary Park.
2016 was a year of trying new events and finding new ways to connect with our members and community. From bus trips, to murder mystery nights, and our inaugural gala, we were overwhelmed by the support we received and how fun each event was! Through listening to feedback from our members, we will strive to ensure that every event planned for 2017 is engaging, meaningful, and provides valuable opportunities for our members to connect with each other & the community.
The young professionals in this area are an impressive and engaged group, dedicated to Brockville’s future. Having worked with many of them, I know how bright the future looks! 2016 was incredible, but we aren’t going to stop there - we've got some exciting events and opportunities planned for 2017, and would love to have you join us!
