How it all began

As a group of young professionals sat around the table discussing the limited involvement opportunities for them and their peers in Traill County, the concept of the network was born. The conversation revolved around the need to create opportunities to meet peers, cultivate entrepreneurial spirit, increase professional development opportunities and help provide a channel for young professionals to become engaged in the community.
