Chamber investments have long-term benefits

2013-14 Chair of the Board
Keith Severson, Eide Bailly LLP

At the Chamber, we talk about membership as an investment in the community and in our quality of life. We have many examples of investments our organization has made that benefit the Sioux Falls area, and I want to mention two that make an impact on our community.

The Chamber kicked off its Young Professionals Network program five years ago as a way to engage young professionals in getting involved in the Sioux Falls area and understanding the personal and professional opportunities that exist here.

Our Chamber has a long history of educating people about the community and developing leaders. In fact, our successful Leadership Sioux Falls program will graduate its 28th class next month. What the creation of the YPN did was fill a need in the business community by creating more ways for young leaders to have a voice and more opportunities to connect with each other and learn more about Sioux Falls.

Through the work of dedicated volunteers, our YPN continues to gain momentum and now has more than 900 members. Those members represent businesses and organizations from all over the region. Through programs and social events, they have the opportunity to learn more about Sioux Falls, give back and make connections that can encourage them to put down roots here in Sioux Falls.
