In 2010, the Brockville & District Chamber of Commerce launched a “Future Leaders” membership initiative. This initiative was intended to get young business owners and professionals more engaged in the community by offering Chamber memberships at a reduced rate. From this, the Brockville Young Professionals Network was born!
Since 2010, the YPN membership has grown to over 500 young professionals in the Brockville & surrounding area. The intent of the YPN is to foster connectivity; develop and grow membership through networking events; provide opportunities for professional development; and advocate for what matters most to young professionals in the area.
