Young Professionals Organization


The Chamber launched the "Washington County YPO" in 2011.  This group of young professionals meets for a monthly networking event on the 3rd Thursday of each month starting at 5 pm. The locations vary, but they are always fun, casual, and FREE!  Although the "official" age limit is 45, we don't check IDs.


Additional activities being planned are luncheons featuring business leaders as speakers and volunteer opportunities.


Current 2015 Board of Directors are:

President - Patrick Ratcliff

Development Director - Darren Huckert

Media Directors - Grant Stotz & Kim O'Neill

Networking Director - Jennifer Phillips

Membership Director - Frank Castro
