“I have a deep passion for the opportunities that the Young Professionals Network offers and I think my natural enthusiasm will help promote the organization and keep current members engaged with the events and programs,” Johnson said.
The Young Professionals Network is a program of the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber that assists young professionals from the Fargo-Moorhead community in enhancing their professional skill set, instill community engagement and diversify their networks. Johnson has been a member for over three years and acted as past chair of the YPN Social Committee. She said, the experience has allowed her “to make deeper connections with my peers as well as strengthen my leadership skills.”
“I am looking forward to continuing my involvement with the YPN Leadership Committee and Social Committee to develop new ideas to improve current initiatives and find ways to increase membership,” she said.
Under the current leadership of chair Amanda Carlson with State Farm, Samantha Gust of the Chamber and the YPN Leadership committee, Johnson hopes to help with new ideas for the organization, deepen the connection of YPN members with the FMWF Chamber of Commerce and learn effective ways to lead the group when she advances to the chair position next year.
