The Rio Rancho Regional Chamber Visionaries is a group of young professionals dedicated to developing a young workforce in Rio Rancho. The Visionaries develop informational programs, as well as networking events, for young professionals ages 21 – 40. Though Visionaries, members get connected to volunteer opportunities within the chamber and the broader community. The group is led by a board of directors, consisting of chamber members, who are committed to cultivating a young and diverse workforce as a competitive advantage. In addition to being a leading voice for the area’s young professionals, Visionary members collaborate with local groups that share its commitment to attracting and retaining young talent in the business community.
Programs and events include breakfasts, after-hours mixers and annual events. Visionaries communicate with their audience through Facebook for promotions, electronic invitations to programs and events. Young professionals, entrepreneurs and business owners who are between 21 and 40 years of age and are members of the chamber are encouraged to join.
If you are interested in getting involved with Visionaries, the first step to get started is to attend one of our breakfast programs to learn more about what we do; you will also get to meet the leaders of the group. After you attend two to three meetings and decide that you would like to become more engaged then you will be offered an opportunity to join the organization to grow personally and expand your exposure.
All young professionals (members and non-members) are welcome to attend breakfasts and events. If you have never attended a meeting before, click here for more information, including a typical agenda.
