August Morning Brew - don't miss it!
Election Candidate Meet & Greet, Emerging YP Advocacy Group Announcement
Don't miss the chance to mingle and connect with this year's local election candidates. Kent Wood from the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce has worked very hard to organize a chance for YPs to get some face time with the folks running for local leadership roles. The Morning Brew taking place on August 18 from 8 - 9 a.m. will have a very casual agenda. YP Chair Lauren Harris will have a brief update about a new emerging committee focused on advocacy for the YPs, then the spot light will shift to the candidates. They will each introduce themselves and give an abbreviated background, and then the rest is up to YOU to interact and ask questions. Don't miss this great opportunity to meet some great folks, get your questions answered, and opinions heard. Register below and we will see you then!

1. What is your favorite thing about your career?
I enjoy the fact that I can connect with my community through my work, as we provide services to a variety of clients throughout Northern Michigan.

I grew up in Richland, Michigan, a small town between Kalamazoo and Battle Creek. I studied and started my career in Detroit. September will be my two-year anniversary of being a Northern Michigander!
3. What would you sing at Karaoke night?
I would sing (and I have...with hand motions) 'Joy to the World' by Three Dog Night.

Exploring the outdoors- whether it be on foot, in a kayak or on wheels.
5. Any goals? (personal or professional)
I would like to utilize my professional skills and passion to assist others to further develop our community. This is a rather vague goal, but will become more specific as I progress in my career and find my place in Northern Michigan.
