New membership rosters for both Protégé Chattanooga and Young Professionals of Chattanooga (YPC) Advisory Board are now available, Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce announces.

This diverse group of early to mid-career professionals represents a variety of backgrounds and industry sectors across the region.

A program of YPC, Protégé is an immersive, team-based mentoring initiative equipping professionals with skills, experience and connections for career advancement. Over the course of nine months, participants connect with peers, area businesses and community leaders to develop professional and civic-engagement potential.

“This year’s Protégé class comes from all backgrounds and walks of life. The people that participate in our program develop into leaders who not only excel in their respective fields but also inspire others to reach their full potential. Bringing together this group of young professionals is invaluable, not only to the mission of our Chattanooga Chamber, but to our community as a whole. I look forward to seeing how this year unfolds and witnessing firsthand as our participants evolve into influential figures who leave a lasting impact on our community and beyond,” Toya Moore, Leadership Development Director, Chattanooga Chamber says.
