The Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce and HYPE Richmond (Helping Young Professionals Engage) are pleased to announce the formal integration of the young professional group into the Chamber organization beginning January 1, 2020.
HYPE aims to provide the young professionals (ages 21-40) of Wayne County with professional, leadership, and networking opportunities that promote their growth and development within our community. HYPE will serve in a collaborative capacity that promotes these opportunities between local businesses and organizations, our members, and the surrounding area.
Mark Broeker (Reid Health) will serve as the HYPE’s board representative on the Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors. Mark and Roxie Deer will serve as the 2020 HYPE Wayne County Committee Co-Chairs.
The Chamber encourages employers to urge those under 40 to become involved in HYPE Wayne County in the coming year. Continued efforts in professional development and social activities will be the initial focus for the group.
