Just in case you don’t read The Herald or the Snohomish County Business Journal, the boards of directors of the Everett Area Chamber of Commerce, South Snohomish County Chamber of Commerce and the Economic Development Council of Snohomish County recently voted to move forward with plans to create a new economic vitality organization for Snohomish County.
Young professionals ages 21 to 39 are encouraged to come and learn about what happens next.
The working name through the process has been Project Concentrus, but this will obviously change as the organization moves from conceptual to tangible. Now that the ballots have been cast, the process of building this new organization begins. Click here for more background information.
As young professionals, we have a lot at stake because frankly, most of the people orchestrating this merger will be retired or on their way in 10 years. Our leaders recognize the importance of YPs and we have the opportunity to help shape what this organization looks like and what its priorities are into the future.
Members from the Project Concentrus leadership team — Cathy Reines, Everett Chamber board chairwoman, and Rick Cooper, Economic Development Council of Snohomish County board chairman — will give a short presentation, answer questions and gather your thoughts on what a successful organization should look like.
