Young professionals group begins in Huntington

Posted: Friday, June 22, 2018

H.Y.P.E., Huntington Young Professionals and Entrepreneurs, as the name describes, is a group of young professionals meeting together twice monthly. The group was begun as a project of the Huntington County Chamber of Commerce and an idea of Brooke Sommers, Partners 1st Federal Credit Union.

The group’s intent under the direction of Sommers is to give young professionals in the area a place to connect, engage and build community. The plans for the group include building relationships, community involvement and volunteer opportunities.

The first two meetings have already taken place with average of ten young professionals in attendance. H.Y.P.E. will meet the first Monday of every month at 8 a.m. for coffee/breakfast at Moe’s Restaurant, 2990 W. Park Drive. The group will also meet on the third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. at The Rusty Dog for drinks/dinner.

Those interested in becoming a part of H.Y.P.E. should contact Sommers at or visit the H.Y.P.E. Facebook page at
