On July 19, 2018, the Palm Desert Area Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Network was established. “This is an exciting day as it adds even more value to PDACC Chamber Membership. The Young Professionals Network is open to all ages even though the technical definition of a young professional is under forty years old,” stated Todd Rhoden, President/CEO.
The first meeting was very productive as the group established a mission statement. “YPN fosters personal and professional growth of our valley’s future leaders through mentorship, community engagement and valuable business connections.” The first networking event is scheduled for Thursday, September 13th from 6pm to 7:30pm with General Air Condition & Plumbing, True Life Enterprises, and Beacon Pointe Wealth Advisors sponsoring.
For more information on getting involved, serving on the committee, and/or sponsoring, please contact the Palm Desert Area Chamber of Commerce at 760-346-6111. You or your business must be a member in good standing of the Palm Desert Area Chamber to serve on the YPN Planning Committee. Events are open to both Chamber Members and Non-Members, but PDACC Chamber Members receive registration discounts.
