2017 Alaska Young Professionals Summit

 

About

After the great success of 2016, the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professional’s Group (YPG) is proud to host the second annual statewide summit this spring for young professionals in Alaska’s workforce.

 

The Chamber’s YPG is the largest young professional organization in Alaska with over 400 actively engaged young professionals. This growing group is enthusiastic to prepare for another successful two-day Summit to develop our current workforce and prepare and motivate them to be better, more productive leaders and employees in our Alaskan communities.

 

Highlights

YPG enhances careers through social, philanthropic, and professional development activities and events. YPG aims to connect diverse young professionals across Anchorage, and create a force that will both strengthen and grow the community as we continue to attract more young professionals to live, work, play, and stay in Anchorage, Alaska.

 

Last year’s theme of INNOVATIVE LEADERSHIP will be continued into 2017 as there is still a lot of territory to cover!

 

The Summit will host immersive workshops and compelling seminars presented by successful and experienced government, business, and community leaders, and other experts in their field. Programs and events are geared towards all levels of employees and executives, and welcomes professionals of all industries. You can expect to see the following topics included in the Summit: Entrepreneurship, Corporate and Strategic Planning, Business Development, Innovation and Technology, Young Professionals 101, Diversifying Resources, and other engaging and educational tracks.

 

Last years’ attendees proved to be a diverse group of young professionals coming from all different industry backgrounds and disciplines from across Alaska. This Summit has generated extremely positive feedback in awareness campaigns and surveys, and projects a minimum of 200 participants to this much-anticipated conference.
