Connect 2140 provides a vehicle to help young professionals network and develop personally and professionally in an effort to retain dynamic and vibrant young individuals in the Brookings area. As a committee of the Brookings Area Chamber of Commerce, we work to achieve this vision by hosting professional development opportunities.
Each month, our committee hosts one professional development and one networking event with topics and venues targeting the age group of 21-40:
In addition to planning and hosting events, we engage in a volunteer activity each year to give back to the community. In recent years, we have served hot chocolate to attendees at the Festival of Lights Parade.
The Connect 2140 committee is made up of 11 professionals representing a variety of employers in the community. More information about the committee and our events can be found on www.brookingschamber.org or search for us on Facebook. We are excited for a new year of connections in 2018!
