Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce adopts YPAC as ally

The Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce has voted unanimously to adopt the Young Professionals Association of Chattanooga as a Chamber program.

The decision comes after months of discussion about how the two organizations can partner together to increase professional, philanthropic and social opportunities for young professionals and area businesses and organizations.

"We're very excited to engage in this new venture with YPAC," said Kristi Haulsee, vice president of member-investor services for the Chamber.

YPAC President Elizabeth Crenshaw said the partnership will allow YPAC to position its members to take on meaningful leadership positions.
