I Am YPN

Collectively, the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Network is made up of more than 1,000 members who have opportunities to participate in a variety of events, ranging from developmental to social. Within that membership are individuals from all backgrounds, employment areas, education and experiences.

In 2009, the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce created a Young Professionals Network to engage the next generation of leaders in the Sioux Falls community and to help them develop their skills needed to succeed in their chosen professions. In the last seven years, the YPN has grown to a solid network of more than 1,000 members who have opportunities to participate in a variety of events, ranging from developmental to social.

Members have access to unique events and contact with community leaders and elected officials. Events take place at a variety of times to meet nearly every schedule. Membership is open to individuals between the ages of 21-39 who come from different backgrounds and professions. YPN members are also invited and encouraged to attend Chamber events. . .

Exercise your right to vote April 12

On April 12, Sioux Falls residents will elect four new city council members from the 12 who are vying for seats within the following districts: At-Large, Northeast, Northwest and Southwest. Also on this day, citizens residing within the Sioux Falls Public School District will elect two candidates for school board from the five who are running. Candidate information can be found on this page through page 31 of Chamber News.

The Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce does not endorse candidates but members are encouraged to learn about the candidates they are eligible to vote for and to exercise their right to vote on April 12. This election will result in replacing half of the current city council and the possibility of 40 percent of the current school board. It is easy to imagine the significance of this election. Informed voters are the best way to ensure quality leadership for our city and school district. . .

Chair's Column

Paul Bruflat Investing in the future pays off

The Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce has never shied away from investing in a better tomorrow. Our 109-year track record has a number of examples where our community leaders spearheaded the charge for progress: advocating for public facilities, our six successful Forward Sioux Falls programs and hosting events like the annual Sioux Empire Farm Show, to name just a few.

More recent examples, highlighted in this issue of the Chamber News magazine, also qualify. Each April we celebrate our Young Professionals Network (YPN), which the Chamber started in 2009.

With the growth of the YPN, I believe we have created a more informed population of young adults who are showing the broader business community their potential as well as their willingness and ability to be the future leaders of our state and region. That will only continue.

This month we help LSS kick-off their Campus on the East Bank Campaign. Our Community Appeals process. . .
