"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.
