What to do, what to see? In Port Alberni, BC

Young Professionals Gather

Posted on Jul 19, 2012 in What to do, what to see? In Port Alberni, BC

A new group called the Young Professionals of Port Alberni is having their second meeting tonight. The meeting will be held at Passtimes Sports Bar and Grill at the Barclay at 7PM. The group was formed by Gary Spencer-Smith and Cameron Oscienny as a way for the young professionals of Port Alberni to meet, network, and ideally improve the community to some extent.

“As a young mortgage professional, I’m often surprised at the amount of new young professionals we have moving to this town. There isn’t really anywhere to gather and meet new people.” – Sharie Marie Francoeur, Mortgage Professional, TMG The Mortgage Group Canada Inc

The Young Professionals was an idea inspired by the same group in Nanaimo. “It has the same name and the same format. We will probably borrow the constitution, the rules, and the structure from Nanaimo,” said Gary Spencer-Smith

To join, you must respect three rules: be under the age of 40, live and work in the Alberni Valley, and have a desire to better yourself and the community.

I'm looking forward to connecting. Due to being in and out of meetings both for council and business, email is typically the best way to get in touch with me. If you prefer to call, that's fine as well, it just may take me slightly longer to get back to you. Texting is also welcomed.
