Envision: Young Professionals

Envision: Young Professionals is a program created by the Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce and a group of highly-engaged Fort Collins young professionals in 2006.  The goal of Envision: Young Professionals is to provide a casual atmosphere and interesting topics that relate to pertinent issues in the local community. The mix of networking and education allows up-and-coming leaders the opportunity to make new contacts, to develop friendships, to increase their knowledge and to build connections within their community.
Envision: Young Professionals is a comfortable and friendly place for people ages 21-40 working professionally in the Fort Collins and Northern Colorado area.  Envision meets the first Wednesday of every month for lunch, usually at the Chamber Office. Our professional development luncheons include an hour long presentation on various professional development topics relevant to Young Professionals. Our luncheons usually have attendance of around 30 young professionals. Envision also hosts special evening events at various locations throughout the community. These evening events feature a guest speaker, time to eat, drink and as always, network. The number of attendees at our evening events range from 80-100 young professionals.  Join us on Facebook to stay current with all Envision news!
