North Wellington Young Professionals Network launches with Business and Brews get-together

The Northern Wellington Young Professionals Network (NWYPN) is preparing for their official launch and first event on Oct. 4. The Business and Brews event will be an opportunity for young professionals to network and enjoy some beverages and free appetizers from 6 to 8pm at Harry Stones Social House in Harriston.

The NWYPN will provide bi-monthly networking opportunities, resources and events for young professionals between the ages of 19 – 40 years who live or work in northern Wellington County. The network was formed through a partnership with the Minto, Mapleton and Wellington North Chambers of Commerce and municipal Economic Development staff.

“We felt that there was a need to connect the growing number of young professionals within the region and provide opportunities for networking and professional growth,” said marketing and community development coordinator Taylor Keunen, “Our goal is to showcase the local opportunities, information and resources that the municipalities and Chambers of Commerce have to offer young professionals and entrepreneurs through both fun and beneficial events.”

Young professionals in the area are encouraged to sign up for the bi-monthly e-Newsletter for updates on events that will rotate between Minto, Mapleton and Wellington North. For more information, join the Business and Brews event on Facebook or contact
