Young Professionals Network

Why We Exist

It is our belief that a community influenced by young professionals is a community that attracts and retains them. Core to the Young Professionals Network’s strategic agenda is the belief that the more informed, involved and networked young professionals are, the more influence they will have on what the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo community .

What is a Young Professional?

We don’t define young professionals by an age. We define it as a mind set. We are a group of people who are interested in enhancing ourselves and the future of our community. We work hard, we like to socialize, we’re technologically savvy, and we make the change that we want to see in our lives, our businesses and our community.

What to Expect

Through the Young Professionals Network you will have the opportunity to meet people you would never otherwise have met, learn about businesses you never would have known about and participate in events that never would have existed. You will have access to numerous business training programs and learn about the happenings in the community that will have an impact on your life.
