Young professional and future leaders from across Logan City gathered together on Thursday 10 October to mark the formation of Logan’s very own Young Professionals (YP) group.
The event hosted and supported by investLogan, and sponsored by Minter Ellison, brought together professionals from business, government and the community sector.
investLogan Chairman Steve Greenwood said YP Logan would give our up-and-coming leaders a platform to be heard and a chance to engage with like-minded people.
“YP Logan is a great initiative which brings together businesses, industries and communities who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to connect and contribute to the future of the City,” Mr Greenwood said.
Federal Member for Rankin Jim Chalmers attended the inaugural meeting and spoke about the great opportunities in Logan city.
“When I see someone from our community do something great or succeed on a big stage I feel uplifted,” he said.
He urged attendees to find a cause to help shape their drive to be a part of Logan’s future.
“Our city can be our cause – it doesn’t have to be a specific outcome or a specific thing, it can be a place,” said Mr Chalmers.
The group also heard from the President of YP Gold Coast, Mary Grant on the purpose and benefits of the YP community.
YP’s purpose is to grow the city’s corporate culture by connecting driven professionals and promoting the city’s dynamic evolution, whilst striving to be a leading advocacy group and a forum to provoke and inspire ideas.
A Young Professionals group in Logan would aim to provide future leaders with a forum to discuss key issues facing the next generation of professionals, advocate for the City of Logan and provide networking, mentoring and business development opportunities.
