Young Professionals Network to Hold First Event Thursday

The newly formed Williams Lake Young Professionals Network is gearing up to hold their first event tomorrow.

Volunteer Organizer Chris Pedersen says they’re hoping to create a little bit of a community outside of work for people between the ages of 19-40.

“It really just started with a conversation between employees (Gibraltar Mines) specifically in the human resource department as to how do we create a culture of individuals that would like to not just work at Gibraltar but stay in Williams Lake. We notice at least for a lot of the younger professionals coming into Williams Lake, and that’s both on our side as well as a lot of other communities or other industries in town, we get a lot of younger people coming in and then leaving.”

Pedersen says they will be holding a free Meet and Bowl at the Cariboo Bowling Lanes from 6pm until 9.

He says just over 30 people so far have confirmed that they will be attending and quite a few interested.

“We’ve got the entire bowling alley booked so between 40 to 60 people would make the event completely perfect and I think we’re on track to get those numbers.”
