Although some events focus specifically on networking, all events offer different opportunities to build relationships with other local young professionals.
There are many opportunities to expand your contact base both personally and professionally in a fun and safe environment.
Networking is important for building a strong contact base, and helps strengthen the community by retaining great people in the Menomonie area.
The Menomonie Area Young Professionals strive to provide members with opportunities for professional development. Members of the MYP may enrich their career experiences in a variety of ways, including tours of local businesses, listening to professional development speakers, observing business panels, and more.
Career growth may be fostered by staying connected with other young professionals that have business partnerships.
There are a number of events throughout the year that allow members to give back to the community. Christmas shopping for local families in need and partnering with other businesses to raise money for local non-profit agencies are just a couple examples of the exciting events that are held each year.
Members stay informed of many volunteer opportunities throughout the Menomonie area, so everyone can get involved in things they would like to support.
