The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce (GPCC) has formed a new board of directors for Valley Young Professionals (VYP). Prospective VYP board members will be professionals ages 25 to 39 actively involved with the GPCC or VYP and who feel passionate about their community.
The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce is the state’s oldest and largest chamber. The GPCC represents 2,600 businesses across metro Phoenix, with local chapters in Anthem, Deer Valley and South Mountain/Laveen.
Todd Sanders, GPCC president and CEO, says the chamber wants to foster the entrepreneurial spirit by creating a separate board of directors. “It’s an opportunity for young professionals to influence positive changes in our community while expanding their professional network and enhancing their leadership skills,” says Sanders.
Selected board members will be responsible for overseeing VYP programming by identifying relevant content, timely speakers and new event venues. They will also be asked to help promote the VYP and the GPCC through their personal and professional relationships.
Board members will serve an initial two-year term with the option to renew for an additional two years. For more information, contact member services coordinator Amber Back at 602-495-6479 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
