An exciting new young professionals and entrepreneurs group has formed under the Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce called PYVOT (Professional Young Visionaries of Tomorrow), with the group looking to officially launch May 19 with a public event!
“Several Chambers in the State support young professional groups in their region, but Central Connecticut did not have one,” said Cindy Scoville, President & CEO of the Central CT Chambers. “We felt there was strong demand so when we put feelers out we saw the interest and lots of impressive young people coming forward to make PYVOT happen.”
From dozens of interested young professionals, thirteen individuals from all walks have joined to form the first ever PYVOT Cabinet (board). The Cabinet is made up of individuals from various businesses, as well as community leaders and entrepreneurs eager to create and execute a strategic vision to energize, empower, and grow the young professional base in the region.
The Cabinet first solidified in February, and has been meeting frequently ever since to organize the group’s structure and plans. With initiatives far enough along, an official PYVOT kickoff event has been scheduled to take place at Cugino’s Restaurant in Farmington on Thursday, May 19th, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. The event, sponsored by Beauty Entourage, is free and PYVOT encourages anyone in the public interested in attending to come.
The launch event will feature an introduction by Cabinet members, free appetizers, and a fun night of speed networking followed by a casual pace to enjoy company and a cash bar.
If you are interested in attending the PYVOT launch event at Cugino’s on Thursday, May 19th please visit eventbrite.com and search ‘PYVOT’ to register for free to attend. On the eventbrite page you will also find a link to join the organization’s public Facebook group.
The Cabinet and Chamber looks forward to welcoming you on May 19th! We have just one question, “Are you ready to PYVOT!?”
