The Regional Business Council is an active collaborator with organizations that share our mission and fall within the focus areas the RBC membership has established. Urban League Young Professionals group is a special asset to the St. Louis region and our connection complements the passion RBC has for developing young, diverse talent.
They believe, like we do, that a diverse workforce makes our economy stronger and allows St. Louis to compete with every other major metropolitan area. Members of the ULYP participate in countless hours of community service and their members truly care about improving the region.
At the recent ULYP gala, several young professionals who are making an impact on St. Louis were honored including Nathalie Means, Principal at Jefferson Elementary in SLPS, Art McCoy, Jr. Superintendant of Schools, Ferguson Florissant School District and Nichole Moton, the ULYP’s Resource Chair. Together we are raising the profile of the emerging leaders within the region.
We at the RBC believe so strongly in the mission of the ULYP that we want to make it as easy as possible for interested individuals to join. The RBC pays the first year dues for anyone who joins. Once you have had an opportunity to network with members of the ULYPs and participate in civic projects alongside other passionate individuals, we are certain that you will remain active in the organization for years to come.
Are you looking to meet other young professionals and build your network? Join the ULYP, one of many ways to become more involved in the St. Louis community.
