Younger Professionals in Corvallis:
Indispensable or Invisible?
May 10, 2010
First Presbyterian Church
With Chris Nordyke (State Farm)
Matt Andresen (Chase Bank and Funneli)
Molly Marcum (Samaritan Health Services)
What is the role of younger professionals in Corvallis? Are the voices of 20- and 30-somethings heard in the business community? In local government? Why or why not? Do the behaviors of established professionals influence civic engagement in their younger colleagues? How do we get tomorrow's leaders actively involved today?
Join us for a discussion with three local professionals as they share their experiences and ideas for getting and keeping Generations X and Y actively engaged in our community.
