Posted on Jul 26, 2013

Young Professionals gather at Imbibe, Wine & Art on July 10th.A new group has been formed in Grant County for working professionals. The Young Professionals of the Columbia Basin (YPCB) is a socializing and networking group aimed at bringing together the younger generation of professionals in the area.

YPCB held its first networking event on July 10th at Imbibe, Wine and Art in Moses Lake. About 25 people attended the kickoff event. Professions represented included engineers, doctors, newspapers,  veterinarians, foster care, and public safety.  

“I am very excited for the possibilities of this group,” said Emily Braunwart, Accounting & Communications Manager at the Grant County EDC. “I’ve thought for a while that this would be a good selling point for the school district, hospital, and any company that hires young workers from out of the area.”

YPCB is for anyone young of heart that would like to meet other like minded individuals in the area. The group is currently deciding on the direction it will take. Some ideas include a mentoring program, a leadership class, lunch and learn programs, and of course lots of socializing events.
