Entrepreneur. Small business owner. Climbing the corporate ladder. In today's economy, whatever category of young professionals you may fall in, you undoubtedly face many challenges in both your personal and professional life. We, as young professionals, must meet these economic hardships head on and continue to persevere and facilitate economic growth.
In the midst of a generation drawn to online social networks and live networking groups, New York City young professionals have not had a network that addresses their specific needs. The answer is finally here with the launch of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce's Young Professionals Group. This group has been formed to address the challenges and support the growth of young professionals in Manhattan. Our goals are to provide useful resources for young professionals (21-35 years old) while creating a sustainable and viable environment in Manhattan where young professionals can excel and grow.
Mission of the Young Professionals Group
The Manhattan Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Group is to provide Manhattan Chamber members access to a large network of resources that facilitates commerce and opportunity in the Manhattan business community. The purpose is to allow members to capitalize on the valuable resources housed by the MCC, while sponsoring educational and networking events that create professional relationships our members can benefit from. The issues being addressed include employment, business development, networking, continuing education, and work-life balance.
