What Happens When 20 Local Young Professional Development Groups Get Together?

For the first time in Buffalo history (that we know of), 20 local networking & professional development groups of various interests came together for a night of networking and fun. This get together brought new meaning to the idea of “work-life balance” as it showcased just why Buffalo is a great place to live and to work.

We all know Buffalo as the “City of Good Neighbors,” but just maybe we should consider calling ourselves the “City of Good Networkers.” In the middle of Buffalo Riverworks, and a buffet of mac ‘n cheese bites, and of course Buffalo chicken pizza, a couple hundred young professionals, mixed and mingled with 20 different professional development groups who focus on uniting people with common interests. These groups represented professionals involved with everything from Advertising and Architecture, to Women in Business and Human Resources.

In true Buffalo fashion, connections were quickly made, and not only over shared excitement or disappointment for Buffalo sports, but instead over finding people who share the same professional interests and aspirations. Wherever your professional passion lies, there is a group for you. 

So maybe you do like the idea of being a part of a networking group – meeting people who share your interests, often eating good food and learning new things. But how do you find and get involved in such a group?
