Why YOU should highly consider attending this Year’s EMERGE
By Laine Himmelmann
If you’re a young professional in the greater Sacramento area, I would highly consider registering and attending this year’s Emerge Summit.
Why you ask?
Spearheaded by Metro Edge with support from the Sacramento Metro Chamber Foundation, this year’s fifth annual Emerge Summit will not only will be a full day of young professional networking with over 600 of the community’s best and brightest YP’s – it’ll also include an amazing lineup of breakouts covering a broad spectrum of taking your career to the #NextLevel, insight into the growth of Sacramento, and mixing a little professional development with mimosas.
Perhaps most exciting, this year’s keynote speaker is Mayor Michael Tubbs, the youngest Mayor ever elected in a city over 100,000. Mayor Tubbs is also the first African-American mayor ever elected in Stockton and he’s been making national news for his guaranteed basic income plan.
The Emerge Summit is a collaborative effort of 17 organizations committed to advocating and supporting young professionals and their growth in the community. Participants at Emerge will have the opportunity to attend four breakout sessions, mix and mingle with 600+ peers, and hear directly from Bernadette Austin (the associate director of the Center for Regional Change UC Davis and a true Sacramento lady badass and change maker), John Bissell (Co-founder of Origin Materials), and the YP-inspiration Michael Tubbs.
The focus of this year’s Summit is to take all aspects of life – career, community service, personal and professional relationships and goals to the #NextLevel. Tickets to EMERGE are $100 for MetroEdge Members and $125 for Non-Members (they also have reduced group rates if your company wants to send more than 5 or 10 people or you want to go in on some tickets with friends or colleagues together).
Considering this event is easily the largest one-day gathering of young professionals in Northern California, the tickets and day away from the office will definitely be worth it because there’s no doubt this year’s EMERGE will be #NextLevel awesome.
