“Hello and welcome to FUSE! We’re the young professional focused program here at the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce.
About a decade ago, this program was created to give the next generation of community leaders a connection point and pathway to develop themselves into the leaders of the future. The networking events and educational programming we offer are designed to help our members connect, serve and grow, personally and professionally in the community.
Thanks to a strong entrepreneurial spirit, the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce, and a support system for leadership development, our community has become an attractive option for young professionals and continued growth. The Traverse City region is home to thriving local businesses, agriculture production and processing, manufacturing companies, international call centers, state of the art medical facilities and renowned educational programs. We’ve become so much more than just a pretty place to visit, eat a tasty meal, then leave.
Whether you’re visiting our webpage for the first time or you’ve been a FUSE member since the beginning, welcome. We look forward to engaging with you and continuing to connect, serve and grow our members and community!”
