Young Professionals Advisory Board
Designed to support and create programming for CWCC young professionals as they navigate their careers and businesses, this unique community of professionals works to develop the next generation of leaders through quarterly professional development and social opportunities.
Our board members represent various industries, organization sizes, positions held within these organizations, and a diversity of perspectives. There is an application process that opens in September each year. Terms go from December to November of the following year.
A community of young professionals working to develop the next generation of leaders.
Impact: The CWCC YP Board puts on quarterly programs to engage other young professionals, provide tools and resources for development, create community, and give back. While programs are designed for young professionals, they are open to all (regardless of age). Please check out the CWCC events calendar to view and register for upcoming YP events.
Applications for the 2024 CWCC Young Professionals Advisory Board will open in September 2023.
