Young Professionals Comox Valley is holding its second annual Kickoff at Crown Isle Resort April 12 at 5:30 p.m. Mix and mingle with the Valley’s emerging leaders.

“We are excited to share our story with the Comox Valley,” YPCV president Matt Beckett said. “Last year was ‘building the foundation’ of our organization. We even held a number of community-driven events which exceeded my expectations. This year we will be looking to build upon those successes to continue to benefit our members, but more importantly the entire Comox Valley.”

The Kickoff will present the outlook for the group for 2013, membership benefits and plans for 2013. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments and a no host bar will be available.

“There will be some great entertainment and huge candy bar and all sorts of great things you won’t want to miss,” says Mackenzie Gartside, an organizer.

Membership for the year is $150, open to anyone under 40 that is business minded.

“Being a member of YPCV includes many benefits such as invites to all events, personal bio on our website, collective recognition in community events, access to professional development events, discounts all over the Comox Valley and much more,” says YPCV membership chair Andrew Rice.
YPCV aims to promote social interaction and assist in the professional development of future business leaders.
