Northwest Florida is flush with young, talented, hardworking and driven individuals that possess bulldog perseverance -- the characteristics we love to see in a coworker, colleague, teammate or business partner. However, given the national and local economy, Young Professionals need a platform to help them develop leadership skills and make the necessary connections that foster long term economic growth. All young professionals in Walton County are encouraged to join.
