OVConnect, Inc. is an Ohio Valley organization that connects local young professionals through educational or networking events, fundraisers, and the occasional bar crawl. It’s more of a pub-run, actually, and it’s just one of the many types of events we put on throughout the year in order to fulfill our core mission of connecting like-minded young professionals throughout the Ohio Valley.
Simply put: we’re an organization of young professionals for young professionals. We believe in fostering ideas to move this Valley forward. We believe in networking. We believe in giving back to the community while developing as individuals. And as you might have guessed from the paragraph above, we believe in washing all that down with some good old-fashioned fun!
Our members include bankers, doctors, marketers, non-profit directors and volunteers, attorneys, business owners, artists of all kinds, Web developers, sales professionals, dentists, insurance providers, accountants, chiropractors, educators, nurses, and many other professions. It’s also open to folks entering the workforce, getting their education, or staying at home to raise their families. It is not open, however, to “fuddy-duddies”, whatever they are. Sorry, duds.
- Are new to the area and looking for ways to “plug-in”
- Have been around for a while and are looking for fun/informative events to attend
- Need to network for professional opportunities for yourself or your business/organization
- Are comfortable in your career but looking to connect with others
… OVConnect would love to have you. Membership is $20.00 for the year and gets you a whole slew of tangible benefits, but the connections and friendships you’ll make could very well be priceless.
