CONNECT plays a vital role in the recruitment and retention of talent for local business & industry. The group provides many individuals who are new to the area with important opportunities for social and civic engagement in the community, which in turn helps to create bonds that many times lead to these young people planting roots right here in Northeast Nebraska.
I really enjoy the chill CONNECT events where we talk about our community and the volunteer opportunities. I met my now husband at a gathering of young professionals which is awesome, and we still come because we want to be active in our community.
In the midst of new beginnings in Northeast Nebraska, CONNECT has been undeniably one of the best things to get involved with not only to find friends and professional peers, but my place in our community.
The CONNECT group, an off-shoot of Norfolk Now, allows our teammates and recruits from around the country a way to meet and interact with other young professionals in town, helping to make their transition to Norfolk successful. I’m thankful Norfolk has a strong Chamber, with Great Staff and innovative ideas.
