Rotary Clubs of Northwest Arkansas and Northwest Arkansas Emerging Leaders have collaborated
to create the second annual Northwest Arkansas Young Professionals Summit: Ignite Your Passion.
The event will focus on three areas of development: Personal, professional and philanthropic.
The NWAYP Summit will be from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday in downtown Bentonville.
The summit’s theme, “Breaking Barriers,” will begin with opening remarks from Elise Mitchell, CEO, Mitchell Communications Group. Keynote speaker Steve Clark, an entrepreneur, startup investor and adviser, will address the group later in the day. Breakout sessions will include conversations about money management for millennials; “How to get things done and still go to yoga;” the future of Northwest
Arkansas; diversity; and generations.
Tickets are $45 per individual, which includes the full day of sessions, as well as a complimentary beverage during the happy hour at the Meteor Guitar Gallery.
Other than the summit, a lunch and learn panel discussion focused on attracting and retaining millennials is planned. Focus of this session is toward those in human resources, training, recruiting or management fields who wish to learn more about this age segment and their impact on the workforce.
