Young Professionals

Young Professionals provides an opportunity for communicators with less than 10 years experience to develop and enhance the professional and leadership skills required to be successful in our field.

Young Professionals members get to know each other by participating in special events, including happy hours, and catching up at the chapter’s monthly breakfasts and luncheons. This group can become a launchpad for your career as you grow and develop in the communication industry.


The Independent Communicators Forum (IndyComm for short) is a forum for self-employed communicators to share ideas about managing and marketing their businesses.

  • Build client relationships through networking
  • Share knowledge and insight with other entrepreneurs

Members share resources, viewpoints and work assignments via a LinkedIn group and meet every other month for lunch.
