The Lincoln City Young Professionals (Yo Pros) became an officially recognized committee of the Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce in December with a unanimous vote of the chamber board.

The Yo Pros, which had been operating as their own quasi-group, are very excited to be part of the chamber.

“The chamber has been supportive of the Yo Pros since day one, it has just been a matter of time before the Yo Pros became an official committee,” said Seth Lenaerts, head of the Lincoln City Young Professionals. “Joining the Chamber gives our group the social infrastructure to expand and help us to achieve our goals.” The Yo Pros are also expected to benefit the chamber. Executive director Nonni Augustine is looking forward to having the Yo Pros on board.
