Let’s look at the two words separately to provide some better context:
YPECT Organizational Structure
The Young Professionals of Eastern CT (YPECT) of the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut offers social networking, professional development, and opportunities to give back for ambitious young professionals.
Networking is a key component of the YPECT Network. Each month, young professionals will gather at these informal meetings to conduct business, make new contacts and develop leads that add to their bottom line. At monthly events hosted in some of eastern Connecticut’s premier hot spots, you’ll have an opportunity to network, exchange ideas, and share common interests with your peers in a fun environment.
Now is the time to invest in yourself and your career. Building on the success of previous professional development seminars, YPECT hosts quarterly skills-building workshops.
Young Professionals Network members are encouraged to participate in a variety of volunteer options. Quarterly, YPECT members will volunteer in the community for 4 hours (locations determined based on need and decided upon by YPECT steering committee). This serves as not only a chance to give back to our community, but to build lasting relationships within it.
