(HAMPTON ROADS) The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce understands that growing our future generation of business leaders is paramount to economic success and must be a priority for the Hampton Roads business community. To address this priority, we are launching tHRive - a regional young professionals’ group. The group will focus their efforts on professional development, cultivating relationships and community engagement. tHRive is free of charge, available to both members and non-members of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce, and open to those ages 21-39.
The tHRive kick-off event is Thursday, July 16, at O’Connor Brewing Company in Norfolk from 5:30-7:30 pm. More than 200 young professionals are expected to attend to learn about this new program and cultivate relationships with other young professionals while enjoying a live band, food and beer. There will be a brief presentation about the tHRive program, information on upcoming opportunities and events as well as remarks from the Chamber’s President & CEO, Bryan K. Stephens and tHRive Chair, Julia Rust.
Thanks to our sponsor, Virginia Natural Gas.
