The Young, the Old and the Brave, the right way

I just joined a fairly new organization in Massachusetts, actually in Greater Springfield, MA.  Its name is very direct for what it stands for, and it is a very positive move for our area.  This group, the Young Professionals Society, http://www.springfieldyps.com/, is exactly what they say they are young, professionals and from Greater Springfield.  If you don’t know, the fact that this group organized is a huge compliment to the city.  ‘Many’ think of the city as dying and with all young people moving out.  This wonderful group of very organized individuals is proving those ‘many’ wrong.  How wrong do you ask?  They have 900 young professionals involved in less than two years!!!!  Do you know what it takes to get that many people involved in anything?  I am and have been involved in a number of membership groups, 900 is outstanding!  Something is right here.

The young professionals don’t pretend to know it all either.  They have listened to a number of mentors, maybe some older, and have taken advice.  They are doing things right.

Tonight they are hosting their first New Year’s Eve party which will take place in downtown Springfield; three different party rooms; various entertainment; a lot of interent marketing.  The party will rock because they have done things right.

Of course, out of their control is the snowstorm we are experiencing but if you are from New England, you are used of it, you don’t let snow hold you back, you were born brave against winter weather.

Happy New Year and be safe!
