The Sherwood Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Group is comprised of dedicated, energetic and involved individuals who support the chamber and the city of Sherwood. We empower members with educational, leadership, and networking opportunities to grow personally and professionally.
The Sherwood Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals is open to chamber members at no additional charge. We welcome new members interested in connecting with talent, supporting chamber initiatives, and contributing to the good of our community.
Why We Exist
It is our belief that a community influenced by young professionals is a community that attracts and retains them. Core to the Young Professionals Group's strategic agenda is the belief that the more informed, involved, and networked young professionals are, the more influence they will have on the Sherwood community. This network is home to leaders and influencers of tomorrow.
What is a Young Professional?
We don't define young professionals by age. We define it as a mindset. We are a group of people who are interested in enhancing ourselves and the future of our community. We work hard, we like to socialize, we're technologically savvy, and we make the change that we want to see in our lives, our businesses, and our community.
What to Expect
Through the Young Professionals Group, you will have the opportunity to meet people you would never otherwise have met; learn about businesses you never would have known about, and participate in events that never would have existed. You will have access to numerous business training programs and learn about the happenings in the community that will have an impact on your life.
