Young professionals searching for participants

Posted: Friday, May 17, 2019

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 has about 18 participants, but is still looking for those that might like to join the organization.

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 group meets on the first Monday of every month at 8 a.m. at Moe’s Restaurant, 2990 W. Park Drive. They also meet every third Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at rotating locations.

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
