IGNITE is a group of young professionals dedicated to connecting people and ideas and offering other young professionals the opportunity to become involved in their community.

It begins with Young Professionals!

We work to grow a membership of diverse individuals – to network and inspire creativity, which will aid in investment in our region by young professionals.

I joined IGNITE to get more involved and I now serve on two local boards. I have gained network experience I can’t get anywhere else.” —IGNITE member

IGNITE will…

  • Connect YOU to other individuals with similar interests and ideas.
  • Engage YOU in what is happening locally, politically, socially, and culturally.
  • Involve YOU in the community, by providing board service opportunities, networking and volunteerism.
  • Find YOUR place in the community.
