Current Young Professionals is a program of the Greater Green Bay Chamber that works to attract, engage, develop and retain young talent in the Greater Green Bay area. Current strives to captivate the young professional audience and initiate their involvement in the local business community.
Current created the young professional awards in 2007 as a way to honor those who advance our mission by profiling best practices that could be adopted by other local individuals and organizations. Additionally, Current sought to recognize area young professionals in our community who are achieving noteworthy accomplishments and contributing to the overall quality of life in Greater Green Bay.
