iLead: Champaign County Young Professionals GROUP
The Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with participants from the 2015 Leadership Champaign County program and other community members, launched a new initiative in January 2015 to bring together area young professionals at social and networking events to build a stronger business community in Champaign County. The new program was named “iLead” - Inspiring, Learning, Encouraging, and Developing Champaign County young professionals.
The objective of iLead is to facilitate valuable business and social networks and create opportunities to connect this generation of professionals with the Champaign County community in a number of ways. Social events provide an opportunity for young professionals to meet other area business leaders and share information and resources. The ultimate aim of the program is to create a robust local economy that both retains and attracts young professionals to our area.
Quarterly events are held at various locations in the area and encourage conversation between all members of the community - not just young professionals. All ages are invited to attend, so be sure to check out iLead’s upcoming events on the calendar!
