Young Professional Unite Summit in Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- Friday afternoon, the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce hosted the Young Professional Unite Summit at SKYPAC. 

The summit is an annual gathering of young professional groups and individuals from all over the state of Kentucky. 

The 2 day event kicked off with a welcome party on Thursday night at the National Corvette Museum followed by the conference Friday. 

Every other year YPAL (the state’s young professional association) bids out the summit and this year Bowling Green was selected as host. 

“We have so many great young professionals organizations all across the state, but I do think Bowling Green and Paducah are right on par with who we have in our young professionals communities and the size of our communities as well. So being able to see what a community of our size is doing, what they’re seeing is possible and works kinda makes things in Paducah more realistic for us,” said Molly Thompson, member services director of the Paducah Chamber of Commerce.

The event featured keynote speakers, breakout sessions, a Q & A panel discussion, networking opportunities, vendor shopping and complimentary headshots.
