The Barton County Young Professionals group is a program of the Great Bend Chamber of Commerce & Economic Development, designed to foster business and social networking among working individuals in the Barton County area. Anyone who lives in the Barton County area between the ages of 21 and 40(ish) is welcome and encouraged to participate. Members enjoy a variety of monthly events, which rotate between sponsored mixer events, business networking and leadership development luncheons, and social events.The program was founded in 2011 when several community members gathered together to revitalize a similar program offered by the Chamber. With the support of the Chamber and numerous sponsoring businesses, the group gathered 100 people for the first networking mixer in November 2011. Since that time, we have grown to approximately 750 total members with approximately 300 of those actively participating each year.
1. Fostering business and social networking
2. Providing opportunities to give back to the community
3. Developing young leaders in today's workforce
