Last week, the San Diego Chamber Young Leaders hosted its first Board of Directors meeting. Leading the group are Honorary Chairman Mark Kersey, San Diego City Councilmember; Board Chair, James Lawson, President of Presidio Public Affairs Group; and Vice-Chair, Star Huges-Gorup, Director of Hughes Marino.

Chamber Young Leaders is designed to provide a platform for young leaders to share their insights and unique professional perspectives, as well as foster professional growth. Guiding the group’s activities are four pillars: professional development, mentoring, regional activism/causes, and networking. The full membership will vote on two to three causes which will be their focus for the year.

Chamber Young Leaders will be governed by a Board of Directors, who were carefully selected through an application process based on participants’ proven success as industry leaders and commitment to community involvement and professional growth. In total, the Council’s membership consists of over 100 diverse, bi-partisan young professionals representing a wide variety of industries.

While membership for the Chamber Young Leaders’ Board of Directors is closed for this year, applications for the general membership remain open. Individuals aged 21-40 who are interested in learning more or applying may do so at www.sdchamber.org/sdyl.
