Meet the Young Pros
group encourages personal, professional development
Who are the Young Professionals of the Chippewa Valley? A membership-based organization of more than 400 people, the Young Professionals are a personal and professional development program created through the cooperation of the Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls chambers of commerce.
The group encourages young leaders to interact socially, attend educational programs, and give back locally, explains Casey Schumacher, vice president of education and young professionals at the Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce. Volunteering at one of their key focus areas can help members achieve their organization’s goal. Volunteer options include adopt-a-park cleanups and the annual Sponsor a Family holiday shopping night, as well as larger-scale events such as Country Jam and Oktoberfest.
Anyone between the ages of 21 and 41 who lives in the Chippewa Valley is encouraged to sign up and join!
