Renamed professional group hosts kickoff event

A local organization that connects professionals between the ages of 22 and 40 just held its inaugural event under its new name.

ABD previously brought you a story about Connect Aiken, which used to be referred to as Aiken Young Professionals.

It’s similar to Young Professionals of Augusta. Supported by the Aiken Chamber of Commerce, the organization kicked off the new year by hosting a drop in to Connect Aiken (see photo above taken from Facebook) at Sheffield’s at Rose Hill on Tuesday, Jan. 25.

The event was designed to help young professionals meet and build relationships with one another. Founded in 2007, Aiken Young Professionals decided to rebrand itself due to a steady lack of participation, particularly during the pandemic. “One of our main goals is to adapt to changes and scheduling to make meeting at different times and days a way to get more involvement and better meet the needs of this group,” says Jason Rabun, treasurer for the Aiken Chamber.
