Join Metro EDGE

Metro EDGE is a diverse network of young professionals and leaders from a myriad of industries brought together by the common goal of contributing to the creative and innovative growth of the Capital Region. Over the past 11 years, Metro EDGE has grown into one of the largest programs for young professionals and leaders in California. EDGE has also supported thousands of professionals in developing leadership skills, building their networks, reaching their career goals, and ensuring fulfillment within their professional and community activities.

In 2020, we hosted more than 20 events and activities to engage our members, raised over $3,000 for a local nonprofit, and connected more than 300 young professionals and leaders at the Emerge Summit, a one-day conference that we modified into a half-day virtual event.

Metro EDGE has a focused agenda to engage our peers in a premier network, develop critical business skills, give back to the community, and empower civic participation. The theme for 2021 is #EDGE4All so we encourage you to join a committee, attend an event, get involved, and make new friends to make this year the best one yet.

As a member of Metro EDGE (better known as an "EDGEr"), you have access to members-only opportunities like:

  • Free entry to most virtual mixers and forums when you register before the early bird deadline (you will receive discounted registration after the early bird deadline)
  • The opportunity to join an EDGE committee to grow your skill set and contribute to meaningful work
  • Access to the Leadership Council, where you can apply and help shape EDGE’s position in the community
  • Access to an exclusive Metro EDGE Young Professional Scholarship from the UC Davis Graduate School of Management
  • Access to a members-only Facebook group
  • Opportunities to contribute to or be featured on the EDGE blog, our most-trafficked online space among regional thought leaders and employers

Still unsure if you should join? See what some of our members have gained by being part of Metro EDGE:

“Everyone will tell you joining EDGE is a good idea, but I want people considering whether it's worth it or not to know that it can be the difference between a decent career and a great professional journey. It catapulted me from "new in town" to being part of an inclusive community of colleagues, friends, and connections. If I hadn't joined EDGE six years ago, there's no way I'd be a Director at a prominent advertising firm before I turned 30.”

Taylor Toledo Kearns, 2021 Metro EDGE Program Chair and Director of Client Strategy, 3fold Communications

“Joining EDGE has introduced me to so many amazing and talented YPs that I never would have met otherwise! It's not only expanded my network but has Empowered me (pun intended!) to expand my horizons and learn more about our diverse and vibrant region.”

Kelly Brown, Business Planning Analyst, SMUD

The benefits of being an EDGEr are endless. Join today!
