Young professionals group looking for new members

The Kirksville Young Professionals Group is always looking for new members.

Here is something just for those younger than 40. Especially those looking to get involved in the community.

The Kirksville Young Professionals Group (KVYP) is under the umbrella of the Kirksville Area Chamber of Commerce.

The group was started to help attract and keep new talent in Kirksville.

The group was established in February 2010 and membership has been growing steadily ever since.

"It's about getting to know other people in the community. We've had a number of individuals in our group who have found new jobs through KVYP. They've been able to find out the best place for certain services in Kirksville because of people they have met through KVYP. IT has a lot of different functions to help young people in the community," said Kirksville Young Professionals President Brett Moser.

The group gives young professionals a networking opportunity. It facilitates professional development. It also helps young professionals take part in community service.
