[November 16, 2012]  The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce is launching a new Young Professionals Network for individuals in Logan County. The launch event will be on Nov. 29 at 6:30 p.m. at the Owl's Roost, following the Main Street Lincoln Christmas Parade.

The YPN launch event is sponsored by Rolling Prairie Subdivision.

YPN is designed for individuals in their 20s and 30s who work in Lincoln and Logan County. The purpose of this group is to connect young professionals with one another, to build strong relationships, to grow together and develop ties to the community. The chamber expects this network to create opportunities for personal and professional growth by providing opportunities in business networking, professional development, service through volunteering, leadership training and social events.

The admission fee for the launch event will be one bottle of wine per person. This will be used for informal wine-tasting during the evening, but participation in the tasting is not required to have fun at this event. Hors d'oeuvres will be served throughout the evening.

The next YPN event is scheduled for Jan. 10 at Fat Boys BBQ. At this event there will be a short meeting to discuss future meeting dates and locations, the goals and vision of the group.

"We feel like this is an underserved group of individuals in our organization and in our community," said Andi Hake, executive director of the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce. "This network (for) young professionals is significant to the chamber, and we feel that it is very important to engage young, bright individuals in our community and with each other for the future success of Lincoln and Logan County. Individuals that participate in this network will be able to form strong connections and build resources, while strengthening ties to the community."

The chamber looks at this as a great opportunity to bring together the young professionals of this area in order to shape the future of the community.

The Young Professionals Network directly reflects the vision of the chamber to be the advocate for business in the area by providing leadership, programs and services that create, protect and enhance the business environment for the benefit of chamber members and Lincoln and Logan County.
