The Chamber’s Young Professionals group conducted a recent survey of its members to collect their ideas on what makes the Traverse City attractive to them.
“We’ve had such great feedback from the YP group this year,” YP Chair Warren Call told the Chamber board this week. YPs were asked to rank their responses on a 10-point scale to a set of four questions, and nearly 100 YPs took part in the survey.
The group listed Traverse City’s natural beauty as a unique asset that gives the region a competitive advantage, followed by the local good and wine/beer scene. Responses also favored continued development of a “vibrant” downtown area, more events and maintaining and expanding public bayfront and open space areas.

Our YP representatives were also sought out recently by David Neiberg, director of the Marquette office office for Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, who was interested in the success of the Chamber’s YP program. The governor is considering a YP Roundtable discussion with local participants on how to better engage young people in community involvement and decision making. We’ll keep you posted on the status of this effort.
