Jul 17 2012 Don’t Miss the FEDA Sponsored Golf Outing


Young Professionals Network Started in Fairfield

Young Professionals of Fairfield (YP Fairfield), a new peer-networking group for 21 – 39 year old working professionals meets monthly. YP Fairfield provides opportunities for social networking, volunteer opportunities, and professional development. Each month, the group will meet at a new venue on the third Thursday at 5:30pm.

The group had their first meeting in May at iPhone Life Magazine. 20 young professionals showed up to hear from young business owners David Averbach and Raphael Burnes. Averbach and Burnes toured the group through iPhone Life, shared the story of how they came to run the company, and gave a glimpse into the future of the magazine.

YP Fairfield will help individuals build their business and social network, gain exposure to what’s going on in the Fairfield area, and exchange ideas to help build a sustainable quality of life in and around Fairfield. The next meeting is on June 19th. Find the group on Facebook – Young Professionals of Fairfield.
