Welcome to Downtown Atlanta Young Professionals. This group started with a simple question asked by Priscilla, a co-organizer of this group. She said, "I am new to Atlanta and looking forward to being a part of this group (Atlanta Young Professionals Group on LinkedIn)! Are there also offline networking events?” From that point, a multitude of responses were written on the discussion board. I (Julian Jackson) was one of the original members of the group. After the first meeting, 7 original members decided to meet on the first Wednesday of each month.
We welcome all young professionals!
This group is open to any young professionals (21-40 years old). As of right now, we will officially meet on the first and third Wednesday of each month. On the months where there are 5 Wednesday's, we will have 3 meetups. Don't be afraid to come by yourself. You will have someone to talk to. Expect networking, socializing, laughing, eating, and drinking. We have a diverse group from different employment backgrounds around the Atlanta area. It you are looking for relaxed networking, COME ON OUT! You won't regret it.
