Strive: Young Professionals Group was developed through the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce to respond to a gap in representation for young professionals within the community. Young professionals in Sault Ste. Marie are part of a demographic that communicate, network and do business differently than in years past. These individuals are the future leaders of this community and Strive intends to nurture relationships to maximize the potential of young professionals in Sault Ste. Marie. The Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce recognizes that it is essential that Sault Ste. Marie promote and develop itself as a community of choice for young professionals.
