Young Business Professionals meet, shake hands

The Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce is hosting an event for young professionals on May 17. Four good reasons to go: It's in downtown Allentown, your company is probably already a member, it's a great way to meet people, and you'll polish your business skills. I'm sure there will be drink specials at Allentown Brew Works.

By the end of it you'll "learn techniques to impress your future clients and colleagues through hands-on lessons that teach proper handshaking and a 30 second elevator speech." The YPC aims to develop skills in a fun way while connecting you to other young and established business professionals from the Lehigh Valley. It's not a social or service group like some other young professional groups in the region, and also, non-members are welcome.

It's May 17, 5:30 — 8:00 pm at Silk Lounge inside Allentown BrewWorks, 812 W. Hamilton St. Allentown PA 18101. $10 for Young Professional Council members, $20 for Chamber members. To register, or if you have questions, contact Colleen Daniels.
