El Dorado Junior Chamber Network on Tuesday, March 29th

The El Dorado Jaycees will host Your Junior Chamber Network, a young workforce networking event, on the evening of Tuesday March 29th  at the El Dorado Chamber of Commerce, beginning at 5:15 p.m.  This is an opportunity for young professionals, civic organizers, skilled workers, or anyone interested in building relationships in the El Dorado network.  Bringing our young workforce together and getting them involved is a very important part of keeping them here long term.

As the up-and-coming generation of community leaders, we need to engage one another, we need to know one another, and we need to be prepared to work together for our collective good.  These are exciting times for El Dorado and Union County, and it’s getting to be a time for us to do our part to secure our future and the future of our children.  The first step is to have a good network.  This is a great opportunity for any business or individual that is looking to become involved and/or volunteer their efforts in growing that community bond.  Union County businesses and organizations are welcome to contribute their efforts to this event by sending employees, providing door prizes, and/or providing donations to support our networking cause.

Refreshments will be served. Contact El Dorado Junior Chamber President Gregory Harrison at for more information or sponsorship opportunties.
