Chamber forms young professionals network
The Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association is sponsoring the formation of a Young Professionals Network. Marion Ayers, the Chamber's finance and human resources director, is organizing the network.
A kickoff event is planned for April 23, but Ayers didn't have details. The group aims to connect young professionals with one another and the community, she said. The network also will encourage professional development through speakers and workshops. It also will focus on arts, culture and volunteer opportunities.
"Most of our members would be between the ages of 21 and 40, but we're not going to discriminate," Ayers said.
Anyone interested can e-mail Ayers at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 875-7008.
