On February 22,2018 I had my first meeting with Young Professionals. I met with Amy Bryan the Executive Vice President and Troy Jackson the Coordination Manager. During this meeting they both discussed with me what the Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce and Young Professionals are. The information they discussed with me were; the Chamber of Commerce helps build a community where people will stay in the city of Columbus, Georgia as well as preserving the political aspect of it. They also discussed Young Professionals, an organization that focuses on having Columbus, Georgia an area where 21-40 year olds will be attracted to and stay.
What I learned from this meeting, is that the staffs over these two organizations care about the city of Columbus and want to see it thrive. They want it to be an attraction, and a home to many. Without the brainwork of the many workers apart of these organizations we wouldn’t see the progress of Columbus nor the things to come. Without this experience I wouldn’t know how hard the workers of Chamber of Commerce and Young Professionals put into making Columbus what it is and future expectations. When you have people working with you that are just as passionate or even more than you are, you’re able to see progress.
