The Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce has made revisions to the Impact CB Young Professionals program, that allows for more young professionals to get involved with the program.
Impact CB is the young professionals' group of the Council Bluffs Chamber and offers our young members, between the ages 18-40, professional development, networking, volunteering, and civic engagement opportunities. This month, the Council Bluffs Chamber has announced program changes that make it more accessible for Chamber members and the community. In the past, Impact CB was open to all professionals who lived or worked in Council Bluffs for an annual fee of $30. Now, Impact CB welcomes all young professionals who work for a Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce member for no additional membership fee.
If a current member of Impact CB works for an employer who is not a member of the CB Chamber, they will benefit from a one year transition period. They will be able to remain a part of Impact CB through the end of 2021 for no additional fee. Beginning in January 2021, if their employer is still not a member of the chamber, the individual may join the CB Chamber at the individual rate. The individual rate also applies for new members of Impact CB whose employer is not a member of the CB Chamber.
“This is a great opportunity for more young professionals to get involved with Impact CB and begin to play a leadership role in our community,” says Sarah Beth Ray, director of finance and YP engagement. “With these changes, every young professional that works for our chamber members will have access to opportunities for networking, professional development, leadership development, volunteering, and civic engagement.”
“This program will prosper as a specified group of young Chamber members, who will eventually transfer into other Chamber activities, programs and committees,” says Drew Kamp, the president and CEO for the Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce. “We continue to look for ways to grow and develop quality leaders to advance our community to the next level.”
