Connecting ‘young’ people up all around Greater Lansing

December 16, 2009 1 comment

Hi all!  It’s been a while since my last referral on here, let alone any posts.  So now I am back and hope to start off with a great group to be a part of in the greater Lansing area.

The group I speak of is Grand River Connection.  They are an organization that consists of young professionals from all over Mid-Michigan.  I would also say that ‘young’ is treated lightly as there are some people there who fit more of a ‘grey hair’ profile than a young up and coming individual.  They have a flagship event which is their 4th tuesday networking events.  These happen (as you would guess) on the 4th Tuesday of every month (unless there is a holiday or something).

Those events and a lot of the smaller events they hold in between are great opportunities to meet and get to know SO MANY young people with fresh new ideas, enthusiasm about their budding careers, and drive to collaborate with others.  I think if you are under 35 you should try to make it out to all of their 4th Tuesday events.  You won’t regret it!
