Following a sold-out year in 2019 and a successful 2020 Fall Summit Series, the Anchorage Chamber’s Young Professionals Group (YPG) is proud to host the annual 2021 Alaska Young Professionals Summit, a two-day conference to develop Alaska’s workforce and prepare, motivate, and inspire attendees to be informed, productive leaders. This event will go on whether it be in-person or virtually!
More than 250 young professionals attend a series of immersive sessions and panels presented by successful and experienced business, government, and community leaders. Attendees are fueled by a phenomenal keynote speaker, insightful panel discussions, and have the opportunity to connect with local experts. Content is geared toward all levels of employees and executives and we welcome professionals from all industries. The Summit provides young professionals with the chance to elevate and step-up their game in the professional world.
In addition to education and valuable networking, the Summit honors a “Young Professional of the Year” and an “Entrepreneur of the Year” at the keynote presentation.
