This year's Young Professional Annual Conference will feature an exciting new rebranding initiative that will include a new title for the organization, a new logo and upgraded program offerings to better reflect the group and its connection to the Traverse City Area Chamber. “I think it’s important for us to stay fresh and relevant and unique,” Harris said. Many of the changes will be rolled out at this year’s YP Conference happening Friday, October 6 at Northwestern Michigan’s College’s Hagerty Center.
The event includes a keynote address by former NASA astronaut Jerry Linenger, a special edition of Leadership at the Movies featuring presenter Jonathon Poole, and a StrengthsFinder talent assessment with leadership expert Barbara Jordan. There will also be a lunchtime Expo event for businesses looking to connect with the YPs.
