To better ourselves as young professionals, we need to take steps to grow our network and strengthen our career path.
Taking these steps often means putting yourself in a situation you have never been in before. Maybe it is attending a professional development event or seeking a mentor.
Whatever it is, taking action to develop connections is the first step to success.
The second step is finding a community to support your growth and development.
Amping up for its eighth season this September, BN360 is a community comprised of young professionals that offers over ten professional development and social networking events each year.
From happy hours to professional development seminars, the programming has something for everyone.
Game Changers: This series includes some of the most talked–about topics in our region, from developing our waterfront to breweries, entrepreneurship and tourism in Buffalo. Join us to experience up close and personal discussions with those who are changing the game in our community.
Skills for Success: This series was created to provide leadership training and skill development to young professionals. Attendees learn about the tools available to help achieve personal and professional goals, and walk away with an understanding of best practices from local experts.
BN360 Gives Back: Giving back to our community is critically important in order to continue the growth and development we have seen in recent years. Not sure how to begin? In this networking series, we connect you with the region’s non-profit organizations to learn about opportunities to volunteer, donate, and join a board.
Board 101: Learn the ins and outs of being on a board and how to get the ball rolling. Local experts will assist you in finding the best way to turn your passion for a cause in to a way of giving and involvement with an organization you believe in.
Happy Hour for a Cause: Our biggest social networking event encourages you to make new connections while benefiting a local non-profit. The proceeds of each happy hour go to support their efforts and causes.
With over 500 members, and a network that grows rapidly each year, now is the time to get involved with BN360.
Cultivate your professional skills, learn about Buffalo’s biggest industries, give back to your community and network with other young professionals who want the same as you: success.
I encourage you to join us at our next event to see what we are all about!
