Sarasota Young Professionals Ignite Summit

Community Foundation


The Sarasota Young Professionals Group (YPG), a program of the The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce, proudly hosts its third annual event at The Westin Sarasota on Friday, August 10 from 8AM-12PM. The half-day conference focuses entirely on learning new ways to grow personally, professionally and develop as a leader in the community we strive to thrive. Attendees will hear words from Keynote Speaker Trey Lauderdale, Founder and CEO of Voalte—who’ll be discussing how to “Create a Work/Life Balance”. Attendees will also hear from local community leaders in various fields—with presentations on how to find your voice, how to pitch ideas, tips on how to successfully manage your team and what you need to know about money management.

Know someone with that hungry drive for success that should be not only acknowledged, but rewarded for their insightful contributions and early-career achievements? The Community Foundation of Sarasota County wants to remind any nonprofit organizations with talented young professionals on staff, to nominate them for the 2018 Young Professional of the Year Award, which will be presented during the event. Eligible applicants must be a member in good standing of the YPG, be between the ages of 21-40 and work in a professional capacity in Sarasota County for at least 30 hours per week. Here’s a great opportunity to recognize that spritely individual in our community who has demonstrated outstanding leadership personally and professionally. The deadline to nominate is July 11 and self-nominations are also accepted.

The Community Foundation of Sarasota County is proud to partner with SRQ Media Group to highlight stories about community impact powered by philanthropy in our region, thanks to the support of donors and our local nonprofit partners. The Community Foundation is a public charity founded in 1979 by the Southwest Florida Estate Planning Council as a resource for caring individuals and the causes they support, enabling them to make a charitable impact on the community.
