On Thursday, April 21, young professionals from across the state will gather for the second annual Kansas Young Professionals Summit. Held in Hutchinson, the Summit is an opportunity for young Kansans to celebrate the diversity of their individual communities and work together to build a strong generation of people prepared to handle Kansas’s challenges.
The summit will, like last year, have a feature luncheon address that will be open to the public with luncheon-only tickets available. Breakout out sessions will be offered on a variety of topics on tracks that focus on young professional organizations, personal development and professional development. Specific topics include, but are not limited to, developing and sustaining Young Professionals organizations, civic engagement, rural community development, volunteerism, and business ethics. All young professionals throughout the state are encouraged to attend, regardless of whether or not the individual is affiliated with a Young Professionals organization. This summit is for anyone interested in making their community a better place for young people to live, work and play. Attendees will have the opportunity to grow personally and professionally, network with other young professionals, and discover ways to get involved in their communities.
