NOV 2012 – YPN launches new lunch time program

The Chamber’s Young Professional Network launched a lunch time networking program in October that brings young business professionals together at local restaurants to meet, mingle and showcase their businesses. The first no host lunch, took place at Las Fuentes Restaurant where a dozen young business men and women met to discuss business issues, network and learn about one another’s business.

Thomas Jackson, Redlands Pool & Spa was the showcase speaker and he shared his recent success with You Tube and Craig’s List advertising, moving the store into a new marketing arena. He reported that using simple I-phone tools he was able to produce a video that has generated more than 4,000 You Tube hits and has proven to be a product mover.

The lunches will be held the third Tuesday of each month at various Chamber member restaurants. To be a part of the Lunch Bunch or to have the YPN meet at your restaurant email the Chamber office at or call 793-2546.
