Networking Mixer

  • The Shafer Gallery 245 Northeast 30 Road Great Bend, KS, 67530 United States (map)

It's that time again! Once every quarter, the Barton County Young Professionals group gathers at a sponsoring business for a casual networking event designed to give people the opportunity to sign up as new YP members, volunteer for community projects, and meet new people in a fun, laid back environment.

Barton Community College will host a Young Professionals mixer event on Friday, January 29th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in The Shafer Gallery inside the Fine Arts Building, 245 NE 30 Rd in Great Bend. Come and enjoy a variety of wine and beers, an Italian pasta bar with salad and breadsticks, and a stroll through the Gallery's exhibit "Exposure Time" along with hands-on activities.

Barton is giving away a free 3-credit hour course of the winner's choosing. This is great for hobbies like photography or pottery, but it can also be used for any academic course as well. The drawing for the top prize will take place following a brief program at 6:15 p.m. Barton will also be giving away lots of Cougar swag throughout the evening. Remember, you get an extra door prize ticket for wearing your professional nametag!

If you don't have a nametag, we've got an easy fix! The PR Team for Barton County Young Professionals is organizing a merchandise campaign that will launch January 1st. You'll be able to order a professional nametag, a BCYP t-shirt, or a BCYP polo shirt from our website. Orders should be placed by January 21st and will be distributed at the Barton mixer on the 29th. More details and a shopping link to come!

Anyone 21 to 40 years of age who lives in the Barton County Area is welcome and encouraged to attend this free event! So bring a friend! No RSVP's required. If you'd like more information about the YP group,
