Please come and invite your friends!! We have received donations as prizes from Coffee Landing, Eleven 71, Loony's, and Rainy River Community College. Come out for socializing, pizza, and a chance to win some great prizes!
You may have noticed BYP has been on a bit of a hiatus, but we are happy to announce we are getting back out there! Please join us for our monthly social events, where we will meet at different locations in our community. This will give young professionals an opportunity to get out and meet people who share the same interests and goals.
We are also looking for ideas for quarterly leadership development activities. If you have any suggestions, or would like to get involved as we make these changes please fill in the information below!
We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
Check out this interesting article by the MINNPOST about the rapid population decline in Koochiching County. While it feels pretty gloom-n-doom, we have some great things going on through Borderland Young Professionals aimed at retaining the young people we already have in the community and, hopefully, work towards creating an environment that attracts new community members to come live, work, and most importantly play in our beautiful borderland!
