To develop a powerful and diverse group of peers with a passion for making a difference, a willingness to learn, the desire to build important relationships, and the energy to get involved in the community.
To “connect, empower and engage” YP’s in the Dulles Region, by providing opportunities for leadership development, growth, networking and socializing, with a strong focus on making a difference in the Dulles region by giving back to the community, and of course having fun!!
Our priorities are to Engage, Exchange and Excel in the following areas:
Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professionals Group is a dynamic group of emerging leaders who enjoy networking and connecting in an approachable atmosphere to create personal and professional relationships that play a key role in our development and success, now and in the future. We are a diverse group of ambitious professionals from all industries who are looking to find inspiration, gain knowledge, build relationships and impact the community.
The Young Professionals Committee offers to the members the opportunity to both leverage their youth and learn how to be more effective – and successful – business people. The committee offers a unique combination of networking, mentoring and skills building and giving back to the community. We believe that the more informed, involved and well networked young professionals are, the greater the chance to have more influence on what the region becomes.
