The Rio Rancho Regional Chamber Visionaries develop informational programs, as well as networking events, for young professionals ages 21 – 40 and connect them to volunteer opportunities within the chamber and the broader community. Visionaries 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. As a leading voice for the area’s young professionals, Visionaries collaborates 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. Rio Rancho Regional Chamber of Commerce company employees, 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 best way to get started is to attend one of our breakfast programs to learn more about what we do, and meet our volunteer board members. 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.

Attention Young Professionals: All young professionals (members and non-members) are welcome to attend Visionaries breakfasts and events. All guests and potential new members are required to RSVP with Susan at the Chamber office prior to attending.
