NCPHA Young Professionals Group



NCPHA’s Young Professionals Group hosted an exciting and engaging kick-off breakfast at the Fall Educational Conference in Winston-Salem.  Breakfast attendees included a variety of students and early to mid-level career professionals from around North Carolina.  The word cloud below captures some of the common themes from the breakfast discussion.   We plan on using the information gathered at the kick-off breakfast to develop an action plan for the future of the young professionals group.    Go here for the Young Professionals Facebook page .  If you would like to learn more about the young professionals group please contact Amanda Ervin.
