We meet up with like-minded people, network, plan informal and formal events, and work together to make Lewis County an even better place to live.
The Lewis County Emerging Professionals network was established to attract and retain professionals by enhancing the social, professional, and community outreach opportunities available to emerging professionals within Lewis County and to increase the opportunity for communication, shared knowledge and interaction between those individuals, uniting them in a common cause to promote community development and service.
"I joined the Lewis County Emerging Professionals after a wine tasting event one summer at Tug Hill Vineyards, where I met tons of new faces and made some connections that have become great friends! I was previously a member of an Emerging Professionals Network when I lived and worked in Rhode Island several years ago, and was pleased to find a new organization where I could continue to use some of my events planning and public communication skills. I've become more involved in the local community over the past few years than I was for the first year I lived here, and am more grateful than ever to live in such a beautiful place with such wonderful people. Our organization is still fairly new, but we are a dedicated group of individuals who are at various stages in our careers, and we strive to create interesting and fun events for people to attend and enjoy, but also to help foster more interpersonal connection in our community. We truly live in the greatest part of Upstate NY!"
