NextGEN Macomb Invites Young Professionals to Attend an Informal Mixer, Participate in Survey
NextGEN Macomb, a young professionals group in Macomb County, is inviting the public to join them at a launch party from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sept. 24 at Three Blind Mice in Mount Clemens. The event is sponsored by Macomb County Planning and Economic Development.
This event will be the first opportunity for this ambitious group to discuss the initiatives they have been working on to increase young professionals’ involvement in community engagement and economic development projects. Attendees will hear from Macomb County Executive Mark A. Hackel, learn about the opportunities available by getting involved and have the chance to make a statement about why they make Macomb their home or to answer the question: “I would make Macomb my home if… .”
RSVP by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or for any questions call Kevin Chandler at (248) 635-7181.
In addition, the Macomb County office of Planning and Economic Development is collaborating with NextGEN Macomb to conduct a comprehensive climate survey for young professionals. Survey results will gauge how young professionals feel about Macomb County as a place to live and work. They will also be used to measure efforts to enhance perceptions and evaluate the level of interest for offering professional development opportunities through NextGEN Macomb. Young professionals with an interest in Macomb County are encouraged to complete the survey at www.nextgenmacomb.org/2014survey.
