Who runs the world?! Well, if you ask Beyonce she’ll tell you “girls!” To be frank, she does have a point. Historically speaking, women have struggled to receive their proper recognition for the roles they play within society. As for our current times, we are are living through a transitional period where females are becoming more independent. Becoming independent doesn’t mean breaking up with your boyfriend or seeking a form of spiritual enlightenment for guidance. Still waters run deep. Women are more capable of pursuing their dreams now more than ever before. Whether it be mentally, emotionally or financially, women are finding their independence through various outlets.
Do you believe that someone’s age determines their level of professionalism? Maintaining an open mind is a strong belief of ours here at the Camarillo Chamber of Commerce. We find that individuals all across the board from various cultures and generations each have something unique to bring to the table. That is why we have created our Young Professionals Group. Our YPG committee serves to aid in young professionals establishing a better consensus of how to succeed in the business community. The YPG committee holds a meeting every third Thursday of each month to discuss networking events and new tactics to integrate young professionals in a more profound way. That way, the committee can continue to help young business professionals grow and succeed.
Networking and establishing your identity in the business community is the ultimate goal of our YPG Mixers. We want you to have a fun, relaxed evening with us and our YPG committee while gaining a deeper insight as to how the professional field works. Our First Mixer of the year was held at Spencer Mackenzie’s Camarillo location on February 12th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. Our crowd that night ranged from inspired college students to experienced business partners. Not a member? Not a problem. Not a business owner? Still not a problem! Don’t worry about your level of experience in the business community; we accept those who are there to learn and those who are there to teach. We welcome all individuals from the public to these events.
YPG Mixers separate themselves from other events we hold here at the Chamber because they represent the foundation for blending businesses together. What you can expect at our YPG Mixers is a wide range of young, determined and innovative individuals who are seeking knowledge on how to better represent their future businesses. Better yet, you can also expect to find established business owners aspiring to lead the pathway for the younger generations. Food and drinks will always be available at our YPG Mixers, as well as a good time!
You don’t have to be a member to join us! Our YPG Mixers are exclusive to those from 21 to 40 years of age. We extend this offering to be open to the public and anyone interested in becoming more involved in the business community! Join us at our next YPG Mixer on April 19th from 5:30 p.m.-7:00 p.m. at DCH Lexus of Oxnard.
